"Psychologically, mentally, emotionally, it's on lockdown for all of us", Diana, 24 from Damascus, residing in Qatar.
A group of young Syria women, who grew up together, left to Beirut before the outbreak of the civil war to study in Lebanese universities. Their plan was always to return to Syria, to their families and find jobs.
As the civil war unfolded, their plans to return to their homeland faded. After they graduated, their tight group had been broken into fragments placed in different countries.
This story focuses on the psychological effects of losing your homeland, and the difficulty of adapting to a new country. "I don't deserve to cry when I have a roof over my head. There are people worse off than me, but I can't help it. I've lived there for 25 years", Souad, Diana's mother, from Damascus.
They recognise their own privileges and realise they have better opportunities than other Syrians, therefore cannot complain, creating a psychological burden of not being to express themselves.
Using personal archives, a collaborative journal, interviews, videos, diary entries and photography, these are their stories.
This story was made possible with the support of Magnum Foundation, AFAC, and the Prince Claus Fund. So far, the project has been exhibited in New York, Amsterdam, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, and Florence.
