Dear Deeply Readers,

Welcome to the archives of Syria Deeply. While we paused regular publication of the site on May 15, 2018, and transitioned some of our coverage to Peacebuilding Deeply, we are happy to serve as an ongoing public resource on the Syrian conflict. We hope you’ll enjoy the reporting and analysis that was produced by our dedicated community of editors contributors.

We continue to produce events and special projects while we explore where the on-site journalism goes next. If you’d like to reach us with feedback or ideas for collaboration you can do so at [email protected].

Behind the Lens: Sound and Fury On a War’s Second Anniversary

Written by Karen Leigh Published on Read time Approx. 1 minutes

In our effort to showcase unseen images of the Syrian crisis, we’ve featured the work of News Deeply contributor Nicole Tung. Tung is a 26-year-old American photojournalist whose pictorials from Syria have been published in TIME magazine, The New York Times, and other global news outlets. The Hong Kong native is a graduate of New York University and has traveled in and out of Syria since the early months of the war. Since March, Tung has spent much of her time in Aleppo. Here, she travels through many of the city’s hardest-hit neighborhoods photographing demonstrations and reactions to the second anniversary of the start of the Syrian war — a day that Syrians, hoping for a faster resolution to the conflict, hoped they’d never see.
