Women and children fleeing ISIS occupied territory around Tal Abyad. A number of the featured women are seen removing their black burkas revealing brightly colored outfits in order to celebrate their freedom.

The photos were taken west of Tal Abyad, known to the Kurdish as Girê Sipî, which has been under ISIS control since last year, according to local Kobani photo-journalist Jack Shahine. It is one of a few Turkish border crossings still ruled by ISIS.
