a year since the end of the military operation by the syrian democratic forces and the us-led coalition to retake the city from isis’s self-proclaimed capital, the city lies in ruins. unexploded ordinance from car bombs to b***y traps litter raqqa, and an untold number of bodies remain amidst the rubble and in mass graves. hundreds of civilians were killed and many thousands were injured and only about half of the 400,000 strong population - prior to the june 2017 offensive - have moved back to a city devastated by coalition air strikes to try and rebuild their lives with little international assistance and few resources. •images from the series ‘as strong as the war, as soft as the peace’ exploring the aftermath of isis across syria and iraq.•

Photo by @luisadorr | lola is 10 years old and originally from ethiopia. she was adopted by a valencian family and has been dressing up as a fallera since she was two. she decided to run for fallera mayor infantil this year and, although it’s not something parents can force on their children, as it involves a lot of extra work and stress on top of normal school work, lola’s mother was supportive of her. •
