The importance of civilian voices from the front lines of conflict.

There’s a saying “pictures are worth a thousand words”, but we think that sometimes, maybe they’re worth even more - especially when one otherwise is at a loss for words to even begin describing the way things are. Photographer @abbiets was recently featured on @instagram and rightfully so. Her photos do tell stories worth more than a thousand words and with her work she chooses to tell the stories of the individual civilians she encounters in areas of conflict. “Surviving and keeping your family safe and coping with atrocities, are every bit as compelling as the actions of the fighters on the front line,” she says.

We couldn’t agree more. Learn more about @abbiets work including her photo series for @concernworldwideuk as well as her latest coverage on the women of Iraq.
