The European migrant crisis has receded from the public eye but continues to evolve. A veteran photojournalist, Jason Florio, offers us a wider lens on the topic, connecting the Mediterranean to the western reaches of AfricaLensCulture.

“‘Destination Europe’ is a body of work that I produced over an 18-month period…it involved multiple embeds, on one of the (NGO)  search and rescue ships, in the Mediterranean,  and the Aegean Sea… I became completely immersed in the story, into the people (we rescued). I followed up with a number of them – especially the Gambians (Florio has spent almost 20 years traveling back and forth, to the small West African country, and also lived there for a long period of time, working on several photography projects)…” see/hear more @LensCulture/Youtube.
