Ammir – Capturing Grace on a 23 day journey through Ukraine and Greece, Photographing for Remar in the Malakasa refugee camp, just north of Athens Greece

Me and Ammir

This is ten year old Ammir, he asked for more food after he recieved the usual distribution. He was very kind to understand that I could not offer more (its complicated). He said with the most mature voice, please come into my hiome and meet my family. We have water for you, you look very tired (I was ).

I sat with his mother and father and chatted over cold water and their offering of oranges. Seeing the strength, kindness and dignity in his fathers face allowed me to understand the heart and compassion of his son.

Dasha and I both were amazed at this young boy and could not help but ponder, why do people in the most pain, people with nothing, are the most generous and have the most joy.

I woud love to follow Ammir’s path. He is special.

“Refugees are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, with the same hopes and ambitions as us—except that a twist of fate has bound their lives to a global refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale.”- Khaled Hosseini
