Urban Survivors

Jun 14, 2012 - Jun 30, 2012

An international photography exhibition from "Médecins sans Frontières" which has been organized as part of the Athens Fringe Live 2012 with the courtesy of the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival...

Urban Survivors

In its photographic exhibition "Urban Survivors", Médecins sans Frontières make us think of how the hopes of millions of people for survival and a better life can turn into a nightmare of violence, disease, fear, exclusion and discrimination. Shocking snapshots of everyday life in five slums in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Kenya, South Africa and Haiti are presented through the lens of renowned photographers who work with the Noor / Apeiron photo agency. Photographs by Alixandra Fazzina, Stanley Greene, Francesco Zizola, Pep Bonet and Jon Lowenstein bring to light the critical humanitarian and medical needs of the residents of these five slums where the volunteers of Médecins sans Frontières are currently active.
