Ashley Gilbertson is a deeply thoughtful award-wining photographer and writer known for his images of the Iraq war and the effects of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq on returning veterans and their families. His current work focuses on the human costs of the refugee crisis.

Gilbertson recently spent three weeks photographing the refugee crisis in Greece, the Balkans and Germany, on assignment for Unicef.”I expected the scenes of grief, trauma and desperation. I was surprised to find the many moments of relief, even joy, as the refugees built bonds and passed through hardship together. It is crucial that we bear witness to all of these aspects of the story.”
