This year I was invited this year to speak and show at the World Affairs Council in San Francisco. For three months, they showed large prints of the portraits of the children alongside captioned drawings by the kids. And, I got to speak to members!

Here’s the video of their initial interview with me. And, just recently, Jarrod Sport kindly made an edit of the video of my lecture, and he has provided a full, unedited version, as well.

The Syrian refugee crisis now includes over 3 million people who have fled Syria, according to the U.N. The New York Times has a good summary of what the U.N. is calling “the biggest humanitarian emergency of our era.”

Meanwhile, another 6.5 million people are stuck in Syria between al Nusra, IS, FSA, and the Syrian government.

Wonder what life is like for these people? See the drawings our children made.

National Geographic Proof, the photography blog of the National Geographic Magazine, featured our work today at http://proof.nationalgeographic.com/2014/08/13/david-gross-captures-artistic-expressions-of-syrian-refugee-children/

Their piece discusses David’s thoughts on creating the work and what it means, with some of the better anecdotes from the trip.

It’s good publicity, too!
