Assem Hamsho is a freelance photojournalist from Syria who currently lives in France. From 2013 to 2015 he worked in the field of supporting Syrian refugees in Lebanon, especially women and children, with access to education.
Hamsho’s first photographic diary entitled “On the Edge of the World” documented the daily life of Syrian women in the Bekaa, which is one of the poorest refugee camps in Lebanon. These photos were first shown in Paris in 2016 and are also collected on his website.
Hamsho has since moved to Paris, where he continues to capture moments from European cities like Berlin, Amsterdam and others.
What Hamsho is always looking for is to share his photos with new people so that he can show them a new perspective on the world around them, regardless of how close or far they are to the subjects of his photographic work.
