"TV Commercial | The Truth Is Hard To Find – Tyler Hicks | The New York Times"

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

I see fear. I see desperation. But I also see hope. Thousands of people arriving every day. Just think about how bad it must be in their country that they would take their families, their children, put them on a raft that barely floats, risking their lives, to find a place to live and find a place to be accepted. When you find it, you recognize it. And that's when you really start pressing the shutter. I feel it's important to take photographs that are gonna make a difference.

Waves of Young Syrian Men Bring Hope, and a Test, to Europe 
Migrants landed on Lesbos from Turkey this month after battling rough seas. Aid groups say the chaotic nature of human traffic has left them without a full picture of the people reaching Europe.

The truth is worth pursuing.
