A postcard from his former hometown Gol in Norway is one of the few personal belongings which Amin took with him when he fled Afghanistan.
This is photographer @andreagjest taking over the account this week to share my project«Return». It tells the stories of youths who were deported from Norway after their families’ application for asylum were rejected. Families claiming protection often stay for years without a residence permit whilst their cases are investigated, and refusals are appealed. Meanwhile,
children start school, learn the language and generally integrate better into the communities than their parents. Therefor they often feel that Norway has become their home, whilst their country of origin becomes an even-more distant, unfamiliar place. #opensociety #humanrights #documentary #photojournalism #returnproject #tilbake #asylum
