Course: MA Photojournalism & Documentary Photography, London College of Communication

In the Autumn of 2011 Birger travelled to Damascus to document the early stages of the Syrian uprising. He found a people in fear of both their own government and of foreign intervention. This Damn Weather attempts to capture that fear and explore the modern theatre of war. In a reality shaped by a digital battlefield, the roles played out are not always clear. Feeding on pieces of often violent and graphic information issued from second realities such as Twitter & Facebook, Birger documents a world recreated and remoulded to contrast our predetermined mental imagery. Presented images from the series are accompanied by Twitter feeds by Syrian nationals circulated during the same period of time.
