Human Suffering at Time of Crisis is a group show at DEBUT CONTEMPORARY, Londres. It presents the works of five photographers: Sassan Behnam Bakhtiar, Frédéric Gédovius, Mary Osinibi, Liran Fisher, Chantal Gillingham.
This is how the curator Barry Martin present the exhibition :
Many disasters afflict human life, causing misery, death, poverty, disbelief and force societies to collapse, implode and disintegrate. Some disasters are natural, most are man-made, and even ‘natural’ disasters in some circumstances can be found to have their origins in man’s activities. In all of these, man-made or not, human suffering is the result, and at the present time of writing this introduction, few parts of our world are free from the physical intensity and anguish of one disaster or another.

With a career that spans five decades, Australian photographer Robert Imhoff has many stories that point to his ingenuity in knowing when to make the most of a situation. Even as a child he was always looking for an opportunity. At the Melbourne Olympic Games village in 1956 a 7-year-old Rob slid between the legs of the adults and under a barricade to take a snapshot of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, with his Kodak Brownie E-box camera. This photograph features alongside numerous images taken over his career in the retrospective exhibition and book, Imhoff: A Life of Grain and Pixels.
