Photojournalist Mackenzie Knowles-Coursin ’07 explores notions of identity and place in conflict zones where statelessness and forced migration prevail. His images and reporting, which have been featured in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Time magazine and Al Jazeera, reveal as much about the tragedies that take place in conflict zones as they do about the human capacity to endure. “The stories that interest me are the ways that daily life continues and the way families continue to grow, people get married, love continues to persist—all in the midst of displacement and war,” Knowles-Coursin says.
