Thirty minutes south of the Syrian border, 16 refugee families live in tents erected within a disused slaughterhouse. At night, the men get on their mobile phones and text home, hoping for news from friends and relatives still trapped along the front lines of the civil war.
Photojournalist Liam Maloney photographed them in the dark, their faces lit only by the glow of the screens. With the squalor of their surroundings mercifully cloaked in darkness, they could be us, outside a club, checking our messages - but their communiques are matters of life and death. Using your own mobile phone, find out what they were saying to each other in this interactive installation.
Liam Maloney is an award-winning photojournalist who examines the toll of conflict on civilians and the stories that take us beyond the headlines.
