Announcing Face To Face: A New Exhibition of Social Documentary and Portrait Photography | The Fund for Global Human Rights
Face to Face is a free, public exhibition of social documentary and portrait photography, curated by Ekow Eshun, in partnership with the Fund for Global Human Rights. The exhibition will take place from 7th October to 1st November 2020 at Kings Cross Tunnel, London.
Featuring the work of emerging international artists: Alejandro Cartagena, Margaret Courtney-Clarke, Medina Dugger, Mahtab Hussain, Dhruv Malhotra, Sabelo Mlangeni, George Osodi, and Kyle Weeks.
For more than 18 years, the Fund for Global Human Rights (the Fund) has catalysed the work of courageous grassroots activists across the globe. Through equipping these bold local leaders with the funding, tools and contacts they need to create transformational change, the Fund has helped millions of people lead lives of dignity with access to basic resources and their fundamental rights.
Face to Face, a new exhibition curated by Ekow Eshun, gathers social documentary and portrait photography from regions where the Fund is active—Africa, Latin America, South Asia, and Southeast Asia—presenting encounters that celebrate the agency, energy, and potential of people and causes on the ground.
In working closely with individuals and local communities, the approach of the selected photographers in Face to Face mirrors the values and approach of the Fund. Instead of imposing its own solutions on partners, the Fund respects their expertise, invests in their ideas and asks them how best to address human rights problems facing their communities.
