The photography project #RefugeeCameras started in December 2015.
Kevin gave single-use cameras to Refugees he met in Izmir, Lesbos, Athens and Idomeni. 3 months later, 7 out of 15 cameras came back in their prepared envelopes: 1 camera got lost, 2 got confiscated by the border authorities and another 2 are still in Izmir, because the refugees failed to reach the shores of a greek island. 3 other cameras and refugees are missing until today.
With this photography project Kevin tries to give one of the best documented historic events of our time a new perspective – and last but not least the refugees themselves the opportunity to document their own journey through photography. Lets try to see the individual behind the anonymous concept of a “refugee”.

#RefugeeCameras in the media
Most of these photographers received new cameras to document their live as a refugee in Germany. So this project ( hopefully ) will be continued.
