The Kevin Cooley Refuge photo series deals with a rather serious topic: refugees. Although clearly a creative take on this subject, it nevertheless highlights the sad situation many of these refugees find themselves in. Hiding away in natural surrounds until the coast is clear or someone sticks out their neck to help them, this collection of images shows just how survivor-based refugee status is.

Aside from that, the Kevin Cooley Refuge photo series is beautiful to behold. Scene after stunning scene, Cooley has managed to not only imbue each image with emotion, but also with life and color as well.

In particular, the Kevin Cooley Refuge photo series focuses on lighting techniques as well as great compositions. My favorite one has to be the snow mound hiding a refugee away.
