About

16 – 30 August 12.00pm – 5.00pm (Closed on Sundays)

The heart of this exhibition is a series of a hundred images by the UK photographer Giles Duley documenting the refugee crisis for UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). From the horror of boats arriving in Lesvos, to stark portraits of people stood against white backgrounds, Duley tells the stories of refugees with the empathy his work is noted for.

In the section dedicated to the families Duley has been documenting for years, we see the true face of this crisis. But this exhibition is also a celebration of life, of culture, and the human spirit. It is not a place that wants to create pity, rather a place to inspire change. In troubled times, when the refugee crisis can seem overwhelming, this exhibition aims to be a place of hope.
