Last thursday I was walking around with my camera for some street photography when I met Abdullah, a refugee who has been living here for 2 months, who was enjoying the view on the IJssel. He asked if I could take a photo of him with his phone. Afterwards I shot this portrait of him as well and we talked a little bit about where he came from and what he thought of the Netherlands.
I was glad to see his positivity in times like these. I can't imagine what it must be like, to leave everything and everyone I know behind, not knowing what I'll find wherever I'll end up and if I'll ever see my friends and family again.
