Yousef by ruthmouch

Yousef

Yousef is a gorgeous little chap, a little shy and concerned as we first met, but he soon managed a smile and was able to happily play at his mum's feet while I chatted to her.

His family have been here a month, they are from Darra, in southern Syria on the border with Turkey. They came to the mountains of Lebanon because they could finally bear it no longer.....they know someone in this village and now live in a semi demolished house and pay $200 per month rent for it.
Fantastic portrait of this sweet child. I love the composition with the inclusion of the red and white scarf. FAV.
