Casa del Lector presents a series of images captured by 18 photographs, reflecting the living hell experienced by those whose country is at war, destroying their lives and their hopes.
The exhibition includes fifty photographs that show the places refugees are forced to go through. In all of them, the photographer has simply captured the moment, with no retouches and without changing any light, brightness, or colour. This highlights the impossibility of injecting warm into images that, instead of horrifying us, moving us and forcing us into taking action against this situation, have instead numbed part of society.
The photographers and video journalists taking part include Alberto Di Lolli, Olmo Calvo, Ignacio Gil, Santi Palacios and Ángel Colina. They have all travelled to Syria, Macedonia, Greece, or Turkey to portray the major crises that have rocked Europe in recent years.
