“The Good Souls” is a portrait series of volunteers in Greece during the refugee crisis. We met Dan Haimovich, photographer, some months ago here in Paros. A friend brought him to our "jour fixe". We share here one of the projects he has done: “The Good Souls”.
When volunteering in Greece, Dan was inspired by the hundreds of volunteers who had left their everyday lives, and had committed themselves totally to helping the refugees who arrive to Greece daily from Syria during their quest for freedom without expecting anything in return. The story of these Good Souls is really what this project is all about – meeting the people and trying to understand their motivation.
This project consists of portraits taken on location accompanied by short articles written by the volunteers themselves.
Dan spent one month on the island of Lesvos, and at the north of Greece, volunteering with multiple humanitarian group efforts for the refugees. So far, the project presents over 100 portraits of these amazing people. The good Souls FaceBook Page
