A Million Miracles, a new Sightsavers exhibition opens at More London

A new exhibition called A Million Miracles, co-produced by Panos Pictures and Sightsavers and photographed by Andrew McConell in Pakistan, has opened next to City Hall on More London Riverside, a public space next to the Mayor’s office.

Since 1950, Sightsavers has been working to eliminate avoidable blindness and support those who are irreversibly blind or disabled to allow them to live independent lives. Sightsavers’ A Million Miracles campaign, its biggest ever, aims to fund one million operations that restore, save and protect people’s sight in some of the poorest parts of the world.

Andrew McConnell travelled with Sightsavers to Pakistan where he documented the experiences of three individuals – Kausar Shaheen, Murtaza Ghulum and Zamurrad Bibi – to show how a simple, cheap operation can transform lives.


The exhibition will be open to the public until 30 October 2017.

Tim Smith’s River of Tea – From Bengal to Britain at Gallery Oldham, United Kingdom

Tea enjoys a special place in British culture and behind Britain’s cup of choice is a fascinating story that is rarely told. Over 500,000 British-Bangladeshis now live in Britain. Over 90% are of Sylheti origin, from a district in northern Bangladesh that was once part of Assam, the first tea growing region in British India.

Panos photographer Tim Smith has retraced the route of the early tea trade and his photographs can be seen at

Gallery Oldham
Oldham Cultural Quarter,
Greaves Street,
Oldham OL1 1AL
United Kingdom

until 6 January 2018.

Food in a Fragile World exhibition opens at London’s St Martin-in-the-Fields

Chris de Bode‘s recent project Food in a Fragile World, photographed on commission for Concern Worldwide in Niger, Central African Republic and Burundi is now on show at:

St Martin-in-the-Fields
Trafalguar Square
London WC2N 4JJ

as an outdoor exhibition which will remain there until 29 October 2017.


Conflict and climate change have had a major impact on food security in sub-Saharan Africa where many countries are experiencing dangerous levels of hunger and malnutrition. The exhibition features stories of individuals and communities in places where conflict, political instability and climate change are reducing people’s ability to grow or buy enough food – often with devastating results. It also shows how relatively simple interventions can reverse the impact of hunger and malnutrition.

To find out more about Concern Worldwide’s Food in a Fragile World campaign and how to donate, please click HERE.

The opening of the exhibition was attended by the photographer, staff members of Panos, the staff of Concern Worldwide in London and the charity’s CEO, Dominic MacSorley, who gave a moving speech about the work of Concern over the past decades.
