This photo was taken, thanks to István Zsíros, a Hungarian photographer, who knew how to capture this moment in the middle of the chaos that reigns on Europe’s borders and rail stations. This refugees’ kiss had an enormous success on social media such as Twitter and Facebook.

A cliché on the opposite of Hungary’s policy regarding refugees,which is more and more strict even aggressive towards the migrants as the recent allowing army to use rubber bullets, tear gas grenades and net guns against refugees

This photo was taken on the 30th of August into Keleti’s rail station, in Budapest, the Hungarian capital, invaded by refugees the last week. A couple, they set up a tent on a platform, they find theirselves into this tent and they kiss eachother as they were alone in this world. This moment of tenderness was congealed on pelliculle by the young Hungarian photographer, who spoke about this moment to the journalSlate.

He said that he took refugees photos for the first time in his career. He added that he wanted to see them il live, instead of the media’s clichés.He felt a kind of superior strength ” telling him ” to look at that tent, and this divine help gave him the chance to take this photo as he explained István Zsíros.

Hungary, last week, closed its border due to the large volume of refugees which resulted in an ugly skirmish between the police and migrants. The border was reopened over the weekend, letting the refugees pass. According to the United Nations, over three million Syrians have fled the country since the civil war started in 2011.

C’est grâce à István Zsíros,un photographe hongrois, qui a su capter ce moment de grâce au milieu du chaos qui règne aux frontières de l’Europe. Ce baiser des réfugiés connait un énorme succès sur les réseaux sociaux tels que Twitter et Facebook. Un cliché à l’opposé de la politique de la Hongrie, de plus en plus stricte voire agressive à l’égard des migrants.

L’action se passe le 30 août dernier dans la gare de Keleti, à Budapest, la capitale hongroise, envahie de réfugiés. Un couple, qui a monté une tente de fortune sur un quai, se retrouve et s’embrasse comme s’ils étaient seuls au monde. Ce moment de tendresse a été figé sur pelliculle par le jeune photographe hongrois, qui a témoigné de l’instant au site Slate.

«C’était la première fois que je prenais des photos de réfugiés. Je voulais les voir de mes propres yeux, ailleurs que dans les médias. J’étais là-bas pendant vingt à vingt-cinq minutes. Et une sorte de force supérieure “m’a dit” de regarder cette scène, et cette aide divine m’a donné la chance de prendre cette image. J’ai vu ce couple, et c’était vraiment touchant, surtout dans cet environnement. Alors, j’ai pris la photo», explique István Zsíros. (Source: LeParisien.Fr)
