Caliphate Souvenirs
May 3, 2019
by Lorenzo Meloni
During his reports on the battles against the Caliphate in Syria, Libya and Iraq, Lorenzo Meloni collected objects from the battlefield.
Included were propaganda objects and personal objects of affiliation to the Caliphate by IS fighters. Lorenzo was able to hide them in his flak jacket and take them back to France and photograph them in his living room.
