Refugee Children Share Their Dreams In These Creative Photoshoots

Four creatives from the Netherlands set out to capture the stories of refugee children from a fresh perspective.

Rather than continue to highlight the heartbreaking stories that have been making headlines since 2015, these four focused on the children's dreams for the future.

No matter how traumatic their experiences were they never lost the ability and strength to dream.

To capture the stories, the team visited five different countries and met dozens of kids.

"Some dreamed of having superpowers to end the war in Syria, others wanted to become a stewardess, a reporter, have a Harry Potter Themed birthday party or just simply chasing butterflies all day," the team says.

"Once we captured their stories we created an image in which these dreams came to life. The series is called ”The Dream Diaries” and is a photo series of children who fled their home countries leaving everything behind except their hopes and dreams of a better future."

"No matter how traumatic their experiences were they never lost the ability and strength to dream. Exactly that strength, is the essence we tried to capture in this series. The series also contains a beautiful 6-minute documentary in which these children share their dreams."
