The moving project What’s in my bag? by photographer Tyler Jump, documenting the objects and personal belongings that refugees bring with them as they run for their lives, leaving behind all their life and their possessions to escape the war. Some medication, a souvenir, essential products, a cellphone, objects that now constitute the entirety of what possess these refugees who have fled Syria and Afghanistan. A strong and powerful project created in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee, which assists refugees from conflicts and disasters around the world, but also seeks to educate the public about the incredibly difficult living conditions of the refugees.
