"Ahmad and Farid Majid and their nephew joined immigrants fishing on a river in Saffle, Sweden. Schools of silvery fish the size of large sardines swim in the rapids, and 4 men with a net and a light can catch 331 pounds (150 kilograms) of fish in 1 night. @limauricio has been documenting the Majid family since they traveled across Europe en route from Syria to Sweden last summer, sleeping in sweltering refugee camps, open fields, train stations and a jail cell along the way. Today, the Majids live on the 2nd floor of a big red farmhouse in Backhammar, a small community 3 hours west of Stockholm. They can see deer from the kitchen window, and they walk in the woods at sunset. But they're troubled by the fact that some family members haven't made it yet. A 9-year-old boy, Nabih, has leukemia and was too sick to make the grueling journey. Visit the link in our profile to read more." By nytimes on Instagram.
