Syria Through the Lens with Catherine Ward

Catherine Ward is a photojournalist and humanitarian aid worker in Syria. She has not entered the country just to capture its war with her camera: this is her home. She grew up in Aleppo.

In this episode, Catherine talks about her war photos, grappling with the past decade of her life that has been surrounded by conflict. This is not an episode about the politics of the war, but one artist’s reckoning with her country’s past and future, as well as her own.
