    Abandoned Aleppo


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     RLeal captured these images of abandoned buildings in Syria while traveling with the Free Syrian Army in early 2013. He started shooting them "just as establishing shots," as he was interested in the refugees of the conflict, but "found that the abandoned rooms and buildings were just as compelling." See more hauting photos of Aleppo's abandoned homes on CNN.

    I traveled to Aleppo in 2013 to cover the ongoing conflict in Syria. I traveled from front line to front line with a group of FSA soldiers and snipers.


    While I took several images of the fighters, I found that the abandoned rooms and buildings were just as compelling.
