Nicole Tung talks about the now famous image of the Syrian child
THE HARROWING IMAGE of five-year-old Omran Daqneesh has been circulated around the world this month. Omran is just one of the 7.5 million children affected by the catastrophic war in Syria. Award-winning war photojournalist, Nicole Tung, talked to The Independent about what makes an image like that so devastating and powerful. “The little boy’s face is just one of shock – it’s one I have witnessed over and over again,” she said.
