Zaatari Women won a gold award for photojournalism in the 2019 Association of Photography Awards.

In January 2019 I travelled to Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan to meet and photograph women who’ve been living there for the past 7 years after fleeing Syria when war broke out. For millions of refugees temporary camps have become permanent settlements with no prospects of returning home.  The series addresses the everyday frustrations of life in the camp. Unable to plan for their futures they try to make the best of their situations.
