Europe’s Migrants: Capturing the Crisis

“The refugee crisis has moved me emotionally more than anything else in my career.”

The migrant crisis and the rise of the far right are two stories that have gone hand in hand in Europe. At the centre of it all is Gil Holten. Our Berlin-based cameraman has captured those fleeing war and poverty, and witnessed the rise of the far right across the continent.

In this episode of Between Us, he describes how documenting these events has had the most effect on him in his career.
