Warehouse

60.96 x 40.64 cm | Photography | 2017
Description
Serbia, Belgrade near the main train station where around 1,000 people are seeking shelter. Mainly Pakistanis and Afghans live in a derelict warehouse. The warehouse occupied by men and minors, they’re living in extreme conditions. Refugees crowd the abandoned buildings, where there is dirt, there are terrible sanitary conditions. They also fear for their safety. The country has become a key transit point for refugees willing to start the new life in western Europe, but in spring 2016 the Balkan route to western Europe was officially closed. Refugees are stranded, but full of hope. They still believe in a better tomorrow and try to cross the Croatian- Serbian border and Hungarian- Serbian border where, unfortunately, they meet with the incredible brutality of the police and border guards. Closing in detention, beatings, humiliation, robbing money.

Szymon Barylski is a Polish photographer, currently living and working in Ireland. Barylski works primarily with documentary photography, which he considers a device to explore and better understand the world around us. Barylski began as a street and travel photographer but developed a real affection for documenting the stories of the people he encountered along the way. He wants, above all, for his images to tell a story and to reflect the relationship that he has formed with his sitter. The places in which he captures these portraits provide the emotional backdrop for these personal histories to unfold. Usually, Barylski works alone, spending time getting to know his subjects and forming connections with them, so as to better engage with their realities. For him a good photograph comes from good research. His preparation for each project is rigorous, spending time researching the subject online then seeking inspiration in the work of other photographers in order to present a narrative that is both personal and universal.
