Dreaming of Syria is a reflective portrait of Syrians refugees in exile and a long-term exploration of the everyday lives of Syrian refugees in the Middle East.

It offers a glimpse into the emotional state of Syrians who have fled civil war at home only to find a permanent state of suspense abroad. Boredom, fear, anxiety, depression, worry but also resilience and fortitude are revealed in a portrait driven project that invites the viewer to understand the ramifications of the decision to leave their homes.

With no end of the violence in sight, their flight is a symptom of a potentially permanent population shift reminiscent of the Palestinian crises of ‘48 and ‘67.
