From My Window in Aleppo

  • 4.2
One morning on August 2012, the world-renowned Syrian photographer Issa Touma saw youths lugging sandbags along his street. It turned out to be the start of the Syrian uprising in the city of Aleppo. He grabbed his camera and spent nine days recording what was happening outside his window. The result is an unprecedented glimpse into a war that has already raged for three years.

His nine day coverage, shooting with his camera, hiding in his apartment, watching the shooting on his street. It was over three years ago, and he was right to predict this would go on a long time... while the rest of the world does what? Children still aren't attending school... So, how long will it go on?

Intense and quite amazing to see what looks like good look college kids, smiling, laughing and fighting a war.

Interesting perspective from a person stuck in a war.
