David Gross wants to raise awareness of the Syrian refugee crisis and so he visited four Syrian schools where he photographed hundreds of revealing portraits of Syrian children. His team included, an art therapist, an art educator, a social worker, and a consultant and they didn't only make portraits. The team organized art classes and art therapy sessions for the students. They wanted to reach past the immediately visible, the 'outside,' revealing the deeper impact that the Syrian civil war has had on these children. 'I realized drawing was a way to show the one thing that photographers can only imply: the psychology of our subjects,' says Gross.
