Szymon Barylski: Fleeing Death

Szymon Barylski: Fleeing Death
International Photography Grant 2019

The refugee camp in Idomeni on the Greek-Macedonian border, to which thousands of immigrants, mainly Syrians, are coming. It is occupied by people from different social strata. They are all found there fleeing the war, death and starvation. They continue their journey through Macedonia to the north and west of Europe. Not everyone manages to pass the verification of the documents, which leads to the separation of families. The refugees are living in difficult conditions and sleeping in overcrowded and soaked tents. They are frozen and have limited access to sanitation. The refugees are exhausted, tired and uncertain about their situation.

Szymon Barylski – Polish freelance photographer born in 1984, based in Ireland. Involved in documentary photography, photo essays of the social issue and Human Rights.
