The Bedouin son




He wears a costume, but ragged, he looks lost and seems to be waiting for something. He wears a costume and yest is in the desert. This is an image that I think conveys a sense of the fate of the syrian refugees, lost in between two worlds.

I met a US photographer in Zaatari camp who got in touch with a Syrian journalist running a web TV. He was a very well connected guy and had to do an interview with this Bedouin Chef that would make an important statement, taking position for the syrian opposition. I went there and took picture of all those bedouin chefs in traditionnal costume and a few minuts before we left this little boy showed up. I just took one picture before his father told him to pose and broke the natural scene.
