Maamun opens the door to his shop, like he does every morning. It is a tiny white container in one of the biggest refugee camps in the world: Za’atari, in Jordan, where many Syrians have escaped from the war. In his shop, Maamun repairs his clients’ phones, whose memory cards contain their past life in Syria. He decides to provide a new service: printing these photos from the phones of the refugees who live in Za’atari.
