The European Migration crisis saw the deadliest mass exodus of people in the 21st century. The crisis impacted and is still impacting Morocco politically, socially, and its economic landscape. American media focused heavily on the Syrian refugee migration from the Middle East through the Balkans to European countries such as Germany, the Netherlands and France but failed to show the complex migration issues in North Africa, specifically Morocco. In continuum with the refugee crisis in Syria, push factors like economic disparity, human rights violations and civil unrest has forced thousands of Sub Saharan Africans to search for a new life somewhere else. This multimedia project serves to highlight the experiences of transit migrants in Morocco as they wait to make the journey across the Mediterranean Sea. This creative project utilized photojournalism to tell four distinct stories: Immigration Policies between Morocco and Spain, Migrants and the church, a profile on a migrant, and a photo collection of unaccompanied migrant youth. The purpose of this creative project was to show a different perspective of migrants and their experiences.
