This Wedding Photo Shoot Was Held in the Rubble of War-Torn Syria



Syrian photographer Jafar Meray lives and works in a country that has been devastated by war. For a recent wedding photo shoot, Meray decided to use a war-torn neighborhood as a striking backdrop.

He calls the series “Love Reconstructs Syria.”

“I want my photos to sow hope in the hearts of my people who are suffering from terrorism,” Meray tells PetaPixel. “My message is a message of peace for all peoples and to stop terrorism.”

The groom, a Syrian army soldier, and his bride decided to pose for their special photos amidst the rubble of damaged buildings in the city of Homs, where their wedding was held.

“Life goes on,” says Meray, who captured the images with a Nikon D3200 DSLR and a 70-300mm lens.
