Young male asylum-seekers are not something to be afraid of and they should be given more opportunities to engage with host communities.

That is the view of award-winning photographer Mark Henley, who has been speaking at the UN in Geneva about taking a series of refugee portraits for an exhibition with Hospice Général shelter in the Swiss city.

The images have been on display at the UN in Geneva, where art therapist Jessica Tabary and Mr Henley told Daniel Johnson how the idea for the show came from the refugees themselves.
