Mr Mohammed Anis by Joseph Eid.

Other people’s photographs I like.

Here Mr Mohammed Anis,  living in Aleppo, is seen sitting on his bed smoking a pipe in his war damaged house listening to a wind up gramophone.

The sadness for me is that within the horror and destruction going on in Syria people try to go about their lives as normally as possible. They probably care little for the politics of this side or that, they just want to get back to their lives as they were before the war started. Sadly the people and their beautiful city will never be the same again, thanks to politicians on both sides.
