Jawad Hosseini in his room | May 2020


I just started a series of portraits of Afghan asylum seekers in Austria (which is by now expanded to refugees in general 2020|08|30). Afghanistan is ravaged by war for more than four decades and yet Austria as most European countries denies many of them asylum referring to an »Internal Flight Alternative« anybody who spends ten minutes searching Afghan news on the BBC-website can debunk as bollocks. We can live with the fact that we send them back into mortal danger because we choose not to see them and choose not to know them. That is what I want to change. See more portraits and read more stories here.
