Syria: inside the revolution

I'm just back from a seven day trip into the heart of the Syrian revolution in the northwestern part of the country.

Due to safety issues, was very difficult to gain access to good photo opportunities but in the end I managed to take some shots of Free Syrian Army soldiers, injured civilians, anti-regime demonstrations and some destruction provoked by Syrian Army attacks against civilian population.

The biggest adventure was really the way in and out of the country. My colleague and friend Marc Hofer and I entered Syria illegally with the help of some local smugglers. A story to tell some other time!

Below, a photo of a group of Free Syrian Army soldiers posing for a portrait in a safe house located near the revolution stronghold city of Idleb.
