MyToilet: global stories from women and girls. A collective exhibition by Panos Pictures


The toilet – a small but fundamental part of every-day life, wherever you live in the world. Seldom do we pause and think how much we rely on having access to a decent toilet – how it enables us to go to school, work, rest and play. In an exciting new collaboration, Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) and Panos Pictures have documented women and girls and their toilets to build a visual representation of the day to day reality and the effect this has on their lives, both positive and negative.

The exhibition is on view at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, London until 22 November.

You can visit the dedicated website to see the entire project:

Robin Hammond wins Dr. Guislain “Breaking the Chains of Stigma” Award

Robin Hammond has won the $ 50,000 Dr. Guislain “Breaking the Chains of Stigma” Award with his work on people living with mental health problems in various African countries.

Robin has worked in a number of countries in crisis, encountering varying degrees of stigmatisation and discrimination against people with mental health issues. According to Siri Hustvedt, a jury member of the award, says that “through the power of photography, Hammond has raised crucial awareness of the challenges face by people with mental illness in countries where mental care is under-resourced or nonexistent.”
