Amnesty International UK have partnered with Magnum, the photography collective, to stage an exhibition of photos depicting the historical perspective of the global refugee crisis. 30534536434_d32f93797eThe exhibition will juxtapose 30 contemporary and archive photographs taken between 1946 – 2016 to tell current and comparative stories about refugees. They will be displayed in lightboxes 2m high by 1m wide, on the Southbank near the Oxo Tower. Footfall on the riverfront is around 30k people per day so they are hoping to reach many people with this exhibition. Following the two-week run in London from Dec 6 – 19, the exhibition will be shown in Belfast and Glasgow next year and possibly in other major UK cities.
