Refugee Shoes published in Zeit

My series of photographs of shoes found on the shores of Lesvos in 2015 were featured in an article in the German weekly newspaper Zeit, in conjunction with a story The Invisible Deaths of Children. 

“Nobody knows how many minors die while fleeing. Researchers have now counted cases for the first time. From 2014 to 2018, at least 678 children drowned in the Mediterranean. These are only those whose death became known because survivors and witnesses could report it. In fact, many more children have died, say the experts. Almost 1,600 children worldwide died during the four years under investigation. 40 of them in the middle of Europe.”
