Mason London - ‘Leaving Aleppo’


Image of Mason London -  ‘Leaving Aleppo’

When researching the journey that refugees make from Syria to camps like the one in Calais, I read that lots of people use smart phones to help them navigate their way across Europe. It struck me how daunting it must be when a person first plots the walking route from their home in Syria to a camp in Calais and the directions come up : 32 days, 12 hours - 3,845 km. My poster is a snapshot of this moment - when a refugee has decided that they have no other option but to leave their home and is coming to terms with the enormous and terrifying journey ahead of them.
