These pictures are painful, they are distressing. The beauty of the photography contrasted with the tragedy of the subject matter is scarring. Taken by Swedish photographer Magnus Wennman, the collection, entitled "Where The Children Sleep," details the desperation of the youngest refugees fleeing the savagery of the Syrian civil war. Despite having escaped the conflict, their plight remains uncertain, forced to sleep with makeshift pillows, ragged in clothing dirtied from a long and incomprehensible journey away from their homes.
