Greece: Migrants on Kos Island

The full ongoing war in Syria has created a cascading effect in the form of an unprecedented migrant flow through the Greek island of Kos. Its proximity to neighboring Turkey has made it a prime landing spot for an ever increasing flux of migrants travelling toward Western Europe, with many hoping to make it to Germany in particular. Daily, thousands of war refuges from Syria mix with further displaced individuals and entire families fleeing from unbearable conditions in their homelands in the Middle East and from countries that lie between the Horn of Africa to the Atlantic coast. Their long journeys include a myriad of hazardous moments, both legally and for their very life.  This photo series documents their more or less brief stay on what is normally a tranquil tourist destination.
