Life as a Refugee Through Children’s Eyes

Brendan Bannon, a photojournalist from Buffalo, N.Y., traveled to the Zaatari refugee camp situated north of Jordan to teach of all things, photography. Through a grant issued by the UN, Bannon spent four months from fall 2014 to spring 2015 teaching courses on photography. His students ranged from age 10 to 20 but they all brought a unique view of the life of a refugee today.
