Elena Dorman's portrait collection 'Syria's Lost Generation' takes a striking look at the inhabitants of the war-torn country forced to live in refugee camps. Each photograph comes along with a short description of the subject and their current predicament. The series required Dorman to spend six months amidst the agonizing circumstances of the camps, specifically reporting on the conditions of teens that were displaced to Lebanon and Iragi Kurdistan.

These teens have dismal chances of ever returning to Syria, leaving them to navigate the particularly taxing of trials of adolescence while also being culturally and physically uprooted from their homes and living in disparaging economic and social conditions.

Dorman explains the project as a way to "help people outside of the region connect with the Syrian refugee crisis." Stats for Powerful Syrian Refugee Photography Trending: This Year & Buzzing
