INFO

“This exhibition is remarkable: intense, informative, historically significant and often harrowing.” ***** Evening Standard

“...a map of dismantled humanity is laid out..not easy to view, but it is important to persevere…image after image will make you wince and think.” **** The Telegraph

“….should you go and see it? Yes. Yes you should.” Time Out

Human Rights Human Wrongs features more than 200 original press prints, drawn from the prestigious Black Star collection of twentieth century photoreportage.

The exhibition explores what role such images play in helping us understand the case for human rights, and further addresses the legacy of how photographs have historically functioned in raising awareness of international conflict.

The exhibition spans a time frame from 1945 until the early 90s and examines the major political upheavals, conflict, war and struggles against racism and colonisation that became especially urgent following World War II. It seeks to present these events in a global context rather than as isolated incidents, moving away from didactic perspectives on history.
