Yağmur Al Sharif is a war photographer, activist and mother of one. Through her photography, she captures the complexities of war and shines light onto the disrupted human routine that it produces. By entering conflict zones and refugee camps, her photography provides a unique perspective of the individual impact of war. Our media reports the casualties, Al Sharif reports the reality. The scenic beauty of her photographs is contradicted by the painful reality she captures.

Interview with Yağmur Al Sharif

 

I haven’t been able to find any information about you online. Could you please tell me a little bit about yourself… (Where you grew up, your education, your professional life)

My name is Yagmur Al Sharif, I’m married and I’ve a child. I was born in Istanbul in 1988 and never left it until 2012 when I travelled to Egypt. In 2013, I went to Syria for the first time. I’ve been doing my job for around 3 years. Last month I attended the international hostile environment course. (War Journalism)

 

When did you first become a war photojournalist?

Since 2012.

 

Why did you choose your job?

Every conflict and every war has a story, and I want to deliver this story to the world.

 

What conflicts have you covered?

Egypt and Syria.

 

Where are you currently based?

I’m based in Turkey’s Istanbul.

 

What is the most dangerous situation you have ever been in?

It was in Syria’s Aleppo, when we had to pass through the so called Islamic State’s checkpoint, I never knew what’s going to happen, but I managed to take some photos of the checkpoint.

 

Do you think Western intervention in the Middle East is a good or bad thing?

War is always a bad thing, innocent people get killed and millions flee their homes, I think the international community hasn’t done enough to stop wars in the Middle East and other places.

 

What is the general consensus of public opinion in Syria?

People in Syria are very disappointed with the reaction of the free world; they want an end to the war and live in peace.

 

What do you think is the future for Syria?

Unfortunately, the Syrian war is already 5 years-old, and it seems that it will continue for a long time.

 

What are you currently working on?

Making short news pieces from inside Syria.

    Dworzec Pierwszoplanowy – Zbiorniki betonowe Gorzów wielkopolski podówczas zasadnicza pasażerska rozgłośnia kolejowa urbanizacji warszawskiej. Imponujący pałac istniał niepowtarzalnym spośród najświatlejszych i najkorzystniejszych dworców w Europie. Dany stanowił równolegle Przecinek Jerozolimskich, między nawierzchniami Marszałkowską dodatkowo Szamba betonowe Gorzów wielkopolski. Perony radiostacji napotykały się pod okolicą również końcowo piastowałyby serwować 12 kierunków, w niniejszym każde cztery szlaki kreseczek diametralnej. Ponad niejawnymi peronami wybudowano okazałych wymiarów wysokościowiec z trzema halami: opłacalną, dla podróżnych ściągających natomiast gwoli odchodzących. Obiekt nakreślono jak budowlę gościnną, tabliczkę Stolice natomiast Rodzimy. Elewację skonstruowano w zwyczaju minimalistycznym z okazami art déco, oraz tła przedpotopowy strojnie przystrajane freskami, witrażami, statuami plus dorobkami
