John Wreford in Damascus

John Wreford, a great friend of OSP and The Photographers Workshop, is a freelance photojournalist living in the heart of the ancient Syrian city of Damascus.
He has a fascination for the regions history, culture and political intrigue that will often see him travelling throughout the Middle East working for clients as diverse as The Financial Times, United Nations and the European Investment Bank.

His work has been exhibited in Aleppo, Istanbul, and Beirut and has appeared in publications around the world.

When I visited Syria in 2009 John was the perfect companion to travel around with, visiting places with another photographer always allows for the time needed to take pictures. They understand you may have to wait 15 or 30 minutes for the right light and can find things to shoot for themselves. Here is my Flickr link to my Syrian pictures
