News of a Korea-related photographic exhibition in Commercial Road, starting this Thursday, 3 June:
Christopher Barrett – SEOUL 2 B
A visually powerful photographic journey of eastern intrigue across land and sea starting in South Korea with the desire to enter one of the most talked about, but unknown countries in the world, North Korea. From there Barrett focuses on what he found on a meandering path into conflict, poverty and understanding with images of the people and places in Siberia, Central Asia, Iran, Eastern Turkey, Georgia including the refugee camps from the Russian conflict of 2008, the largest Roma community in Europe found in Macedonia, and Mitrovitica in Kosova where too many lives have been shaped by hatred.
