As the conflict is entering its third year there has been little if any international support from democratic leaders to end the killing despite the fact that over 100,000 Syrians have been killed, as well as over 28,000 have gone missing. 4.5 million Syrians are dispaced within their country and over 1.5 million Syrians are now refugees in neighboring countries.

I have found, many viewers find it easier to condemn the image maker rather than the perpetrators of war crimes against humanity." Democratic Desert is the first comprehensive photo journlistic book about the war in Syria. Robert King entered the country when almost all conflict photographers left, and he stayed.
