Photo series of refugee boats

German photographer Heiko Schäfer’s photo series “Maritime Incidents” documents refugee boats intercepted off the coasts of Italy. Each stark picture is accompanied by details pertaining to each boat: type, propulsion, circumstance of and intercept location, country of origin, and number of refugees. And yet juxtaposed to these details, the photos themselves describe more and tell a richer poignant story than these clinical facts.
