Eighteen Days With Syrian Rebels
A stunning, provocative photo essay by Goran Tomasevic who writes:

Pictures must show the reality of the war in Syria and that’s why I wanted to be as close as I could to the fighters to the very front line to show exactly what they are doing, their emotions, how they run and fire weapons and also how they react to incoming shells. There is a certain amount of risk and you need to take all necessary precautions but if you want to do tell the true story, you have to be there.
We organized everything before entering Syria so members of the Free Syrian Army were waiting for us on the other side of the border. As soon as we crossed we went to a farm which was the rebel base where Arab-speaking journalist Hadeel Al Shalchi spoke with the local commander. On the same day that we crossed the border we managed to get to the front line in Aleppo.
