The Inside-Outside Project App is a platform for multimedia advocacy. It showcases photography, art, stories, and essays. It is also a medium for sharing people’s lives, beginning with the Syrian refugee children in our project from Turkey.

The goal of our first project is to find an unusual and compelling way to connect you with the Syrian children who need your help. Images of refugees in the media generally don’t help us make the emotional connections to these distant and foreign people that lead to action. We know there is a problem because, despite the media coverage of the Syrian war, humanitarian aid organizations still don’t have the resources they need to help the refugees.

This project seeks to break through the filters of distance and otherness by presenting Syrian children as dignified individuals while sharing their inner turmoil in a way that any parent can immediately understand.

Designed by photographer Ed Kashi, this app is a unique experiment between journal writing and photography. Ed Kashi writes: As a photojournalist, home’s always been a shifting term, with shifting people and shifting objects vying for my attention. Upon marrying Julie in 1994, that dynamic was forever altered. Encompassing nearly 20 years, Photojournalisms is a collection of photographs, diary entries and letters to my wife. Paired with images taken from around the globe, they reflect my deep-seated desire/need, to connect and let Julie know what I had just seen, felt, heard and recorded. The very art of creating this book touches upon my desire to reach out to others and to report on issues throughout the world.

This collection of photography and writing captures a side of the conflicts in both Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan that is rarely seen. Photographer David Gross and writer Nicholas Birch intimately explored three stories from this war-torn region. One story asks how Iraqi Kurdistan protects itself in the face of Arab intimidation. Another looks at how arming poor villagers can backfire. The third is a series of audio interviews and portraits of courageous fighters for human rights in Turkey.

This is the first installation of “Be Your Own Publisher” our technology. The book app is managed from a WordPress website, allowing The War Diaries Project  to add new books and make updates from WordPress.

The free War Diaries app for the iPad is an extension of the exhibition. It includes Tim McLaughlin’s complete diary and military journal; each page can be magnified to see the details. The War Diaries app also includes a series of stories by Peter Maass and photographs by Gary Knight that delve into the invasion and its aftermath. The app complements the exhibition and stands alone as a digital document that tells its own story.
