With the Where The Children Sleep project, the famous Swedish photographer Magnus Wennman decided to document the places where the children of Syrian refugees sleep, to raise awareness about the dire conditions of refugee families who fled the horrors of the war. Some shocking photographs that seek to give a human face to the refugees and their children, but above all to help understand once and for all the gravity of the situation for those families who gave up everything for their survival. A series to be compared with the similar project of photographer James Mollison, also entitled Where Children Sleep.
