Wasted young Libya
As Libya is fading into the second civil war, it is also falling in a deep political and economic crisis affecting the new generation. Those who took the arms to fight not so long ago are the first victims of the growing lack of employment, security and education. As the blow of freedom has mutated into a new kind of emprisonment, a lot of them start to dream of leaving, as others choose to play the game, trapped into the circle of violence and greed. The broken young generation of libyans is struggling to imagine a brighter future than guns, money and Shariah. As if the fight was already lost.

A 2 years work between 2012 and 2014 depicting the rise and fall of the Free Libya.
