A Small Corner of Hell by Kenny Karpov
In his photo essay, Karpov photographed and interviewed thousands of refugees who fled from their homeland from parts of the Middle East and Africa. Many of the refugees are escaping discrimination and terrible poverty, while others are fleeing from years of war and conflict — and horrifying stories of torture have emerged from those rescued. The men, women, and children were kept in cages for days, holed up in ditches, killed in cold blood, raped, and tortured. In some respects, these refugees might be considered lucky since they made it safely out of Libya where their lives were in immediate danger. Thousands of others still remain in Libya enduring horrific violence.
