Scope and content:

The color photographs in this series were taken by photojournalist Darrin Zammit Lupi in January and February 2016 while on assignment for the Jesuit Refugee Service, an international Catholic organisation, at a time when huge numbers of refugees and migrants, mostly from Syria and Afghanistan, were attempting to reach Europe via Turkey. Together with writer Danielle Vella, author of the book "Journeys of Hope" (also included in this collection), he visited various hotspots in Macedonia, Croatia and Serbia and Greece. The images in the collection, a variety of close-ups of individuals and wide shots of groups of people within their environment, cover the arrival of refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos, life in a refugee camp on Lesbos, refugees arriving on the Greek mainland and making their way north to Macedonia and beyond, crossing Serbia and into Croatia, from where most hoped to reach countries such as Germany or the United Kingdom. All prints measure approximately 20x24 inches.

Electronic records (4070 files) also form an important part of this series. All images are in color. They include 185 tiff files; 3816 low-resolution jpgs from which the larger images were selected; 49 png images of contact sheets; 14 pdfs of Sunday Circle, Professional Imagemaker, and Times of Malta articles featuring Zammit Lupi's photographic work in English, French, Italian, and Spanish; 1 docx version of Vella's "Journeys of Hope." The tiff images are immediately available through links in this series.
