""I have become a shadow." This September, Abdullah Kurdi, 39, lost his wife and 2 sons when the smugglers' boat carrying the family from Turkey to Greece capsized. When the tiny body of Abdullah's 2-year-old son, Alan, washed up on a beach in Turkey, the world was forced to focus on the pain of Syria's refugees.

Abdullah sometimes blames himself for what happened to his family, wishing he could turn back time and not get on the boat. @bdentonphoto photographed Abdullah in a hotel in Erbil, in Iraq's Kurdistan region, a few weeks after the tragedy."
