Media and Modern Conflict: A Role for Peace
International Alert, in partnership with Getty Images and Panos Pictures, are organising the photographic exhibition Media & Modern Conflict: A role for peace to mark World Press Freedom Day (3rd May).
This exhibition, which will be held at the SW1 Gallery in London from 1st to 5th May, will feature a collection of images of hope and humanity during times of conflict from some of the world’s most renowned photographers, including Sean Smith (The Guardian), Jenny Matthews, Carol Allen Storey, Jason P Howe and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Kim Komenich.
Through the work of these photographers, the event will highlight the important role media plays in conflict regions as well as introduce the work of peacebuilding NGO International Alert in these regions.
“The role of fair and impartial reporting from conflict zones is paramount,” said International Alert’s Secretary General, Dan Smith. “Too often, biased and inaccurate reports have inflamed opinion and contributed to conflict erupting and escalating. International Alert pays tribute to the photographers who work in these challenging and extremely dangerous environments to tell the stories of those caught up in the violence, producing images that impel us to help build peace.”
