It is one, of a huge global crisis. 

This abstract series, is a series of silhouettes.I decided to focus on all those, whose lives were lost along the way.

They started the journey, fleeing from their war torn countries, with hope of a new life outside terror and uncertainty, but didn't make it.

They died sea bound, or were left to die in refrigerated vans or just died, on their way washed ashore and are unidentified.

No one would ever know, what happened or how it happened. No one or any one at all, will account for them or be held responsible. 


They are just unknown faces, of someone's dad, mother, sister, friend, child or brother,
