Born in Syria, but forced to flee to Lebanon in 2014, Mohamad Khayata has witnessed his nation's landscape and communities torn apart. His poignant photographic series 'Stiching My Syria Back' documents Syrian individuals in the dispersed locations of Damascus, Lebanon and Tunisia, reuniting them with a traditional "Madeh" patchwork quilt, which was created with fond memories of his mother. The series represents the artist's desire to reunite and 'stitch' Syria back together, with hopes of one day being able to return home.
