Syrian and Sub-Saharan African migrants attend a commemorative service organised by the Jesuit Refugee Services for immigrants who lost their lives at sea earlier this month, in Valletta’s Grand Harbour, October 25, 2013.

I was covering the commemorative service for the migrants who had drowned in the tragedy off Lampedusa earlier that month. Many survivors were present. As they moved to the water’s edge, I jumped down to lower ledge to shoot from as low an angle as possible as they cast flowers into the sea.
