Tommy Trenchard & FIDH’s Waiting for Justice featured on The Guardian website

Panos photographer Tommy Trenchard’s portraits of people in Guinea who have been the victims of state-sponsored violence over the past 20 years are currently being exhibited at the French Cultural Centre in Conakry, the Guinean capital. The photo project was sponsored by the Worldwide Human Rights Movement (FIDH), an non-profit organisation that is “defending all civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

The series of portraits, mainly taken at night and in the places where the violent acts occurred, are featured on The Guardian website.

Build Hope In The City exhibition at St Martin in the Fields in London

Panos photographer Abbie Trayler-Smith worked in partnership with Concern Worldwide, travelling to Kenya, Haiti and Bangladesh, to capture the lives of some of the world’s poorest people living in urban environments.

For the first time in history, more than half of the global population lives in cities. For many, urban life can be a daily struggle competing with millions of others for work, shelter and food.

Abbie’s images have been curated into a photo exhibition that is on show in London, Belfast, Enniskillen and Derry.
