In 2016 Lachie Hinton traveled to Europe to document the largest refugee crisis since WWII. With a camera and sketchbook in hand, Hinton followed the refugee trail from Istanbul to Chios, Lesbos, Athens and Idomeni, documenting the individual stories behind news headlines around the globe. 

Hinton’s incongruous images of idyllic Greek islands dotted with displaced people reframes the current political debate, humanising the thousands of displaced Syrians, Iraqis and Afghans who have undertaken the journey into Europe.  

Hinton's humane expressionist style recalls the German Expressionists' sincere depictions of war. Hinton's intimate drawing Portrait of a Syrian Refugee gives a glimpse of an individual and her everyday life at the Idomeni Refugee Camp.
