Returning from ISIS
The Islamic State has lost its territory in Syria and Iraq and thousands of fighters and their families have been captured or dispersed. There are growing fears that the remnants could bring terrorism home with them.
More than 12,000 foreign women and children are detained in Syria and Iraq. This poses a difficult quandary for their home countries, most of which have refused to repatriate their citizens. I followed Turkish children who returned home to their grandparents and Kazakh women with their kids who were allowed to come back to their families, for The NY Times.
One of the pictures from this photo project was featured in the year in pictures for The NY Times.
