This picture shows internally displaced populations (IDPs) grouped together in colourful outfits, which set them apart from those conforming to ISIS rule who wore black. The darkness of the picture reflects the mood of the subject matter. The watercolour at the bottom right hand side of the page is bleeding or running like tears.
