Since August 2020 we — an Afghan refugee living in Camp Moria on Lesbos (Greece) and a photo editor based in the Netherlands — have been collecting photos and sharing stories that document life in the camp. We started an Instagram account: @now_you_see_me_moria. A Syrian refugee there and another Afghan man joined later. It was an attempt to make people across Europe aware of the situation.
Many of the stories were picked up by the media. But nothing has changed. In the meanwhile, visibility has been reduced to almost zero: journalists and photographers are not allowed to the new camp while NGO workers are instructed to not take pictures.
Visibility is key to invoking change. In a collaborative effort we wish to confront fellow citizens and politicians with the outcome of the failing European migration policy. We need change!
