Photo Gallery: Camps, Traces and Communities in Transit

Taken during the summer of 2016, these photographs capture the dual processes of mobility and immobility experienced by thousands of refugees as they have sought safety in, from, and through a range of spaces in Turkey and Greece.

From the makeshift camps near Adana, to individual, familial and collective preparations to cross the Aegean Sea near Çeşme, reaching Thessaloniki and the informal encampments of Idomeni in Greece, the photographs reflect a combination of being stranded whilst being en route to the unknown.
