Photojournalistic prints are used to explore how images have helped promote the case for human rights.
More than 200 original press pictures drawn from the Black Star agency’s collection feature in this exhibition documenting photo reportage of international conflict. Beginning in 1945 and spanning up to the early 90s it examines political upheavals, struggles against racism and colonisation and experiences of living through war.
Included are images capturing the civil rights movement in the US, famine and fighting in Biafra and the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia.
