Child Behind Barbed Wire

I was drawn to a photo of a young Pakistani refugee peering out from behind barbed wire. The photo was so powerful, I felt this child`s angst and was inspired to do what I could to expose his sadness. Some people reveal emotions through words, but my strength lies in expressing the depth of my feelings visually. I wrote to Zoriah, the award-winning journalist who took the photo, and he gave me permission to use it for this piece.
