Mostly Uninvited 124 – 132



The following were cut from Without Borders, the newspaper of Medicins Sans Frontieres. Starting at the bottom and going up:

14 year old Malik, who lost a leg when a bomb fell on a wedding party at his family’s home in Syria. Photo, Ton Koene.

Ivan Gayton, MSF’s emergency coordinator. Not sure who took the photograph.

Ben Gupta, anaesthetist. Photo, Ton Koene.

Mohammed Jamus, wounded in the war in Syria. Photo, Ton Koene.

One of the men in the surgical masks is Dr Haydar Alwash, an Iraqi surgeon, once a refugee himself. I’m afraid I don’t know the identity of the other masked man. Photo: Ton Koene.

I am not sure about the man at the top. He could be psychologist, Henrike Zellman, or he could be an unnamed man waiting to see a doctor. See below and make up your own mind. Photo: Yuri Kozyrev/Noor.

If You Are New Here: This project involves me sewing faces, from the obscene amount of junk mail that finds its way into my house, onto a big woollen blanket. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the junk mail was pushed through my letterbox. Or else it was inside of a newspaper. I will always credit photographers, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.
