From Lebanon to Greece, British Photographer Giles Duley has been capturing refugees' epic journeys of survival as they search for a new home.

His book "I Can Only Tell You What My Eyes See", recently launched in London, covers more than a year spent documenting the refugee crisis.

Giles travelled to countries in the Middle East and Europe in 2015 and 2016 photographing the refugee crisis, in partnership with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.

His quest now is to encourage people and governments not to abandon those in need.

All profits from the proceeds from sales of the book will be donated to UNHCR to protect the rights and well-being of refugees.
