In January 2017, French photographer Philippe de Poulpiquet spent two weeks with Handicap International’s teams in Jordan and Lebanon. Every day they went out to visit Syrian refugees, including numerous victims of explosive weapons.

This exhibition, supported by ECHO (the European Commission’s Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations) gives a voice to these civilians, whose lives were turned upside down in a few short moments. Their stories reflect a terrible reality shared by hundreds of thousands of Syrians since the beginning of the war in 2011.
