In one image by the British photographer Vanessa Winship, a group of Kosovan refugees – mostly children – stand on a hillside, staring fixedly in the same direction. Whatever they are looking at is out of shot. An older man holds out his arm in a gesture that is part reprimand, part plea. The children around him look fearful; some clutch empty buckets and pots. While the picture looks gloomy with the thick clouds rolling above them, what is most moving about this image is the sturdy, determined and dignified expressions worn by some of the figures, despite the devastation in front of them.
