Time Publishes Annual ‘Year Ahead’ Issue

Featuring babies.

Time has published its fifth annual The Year Ahead issue, featuring four different babies on four different covers.

The babies—each born in Greece to Syrian refugee mothers—are part of a yearlong project from Time called Finding Home. For the next year, Time Africa bureau chief Aryn Baker and videographer Francesca Trianni, along with photojournalist Lynsey Addario, will document the life of the babies and their mothers.

“Our goal is to understand the intense and intimate challenges faced by these families,” wrote Time editor Nancy Gibbs, in her editor’s letter. “Our reporting team will follow four of these babies for the next year, being present with the mothers from the delivery room to returning to their tents and managing a newborn in a setting with no hot water or flush toilets, no toys, no place to play. We will follow them through the labyrinthine asylum process and the next journey, wherever it takes them, telling their stories in the magazine, on Time.com and on Facebook, Instagram (@FindingHome) and more.”

Check out the covers below.
