Urban Survivors
Hellenic American Union |

An international photography exhibition from “Médecins sans Frontières” which has been organized as part of the Athens Fringe Live 2012 with the courtesy of the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival…

In its photographic exhibition ”Urban Survivors”, Médecins sans Frontières make us think ofhow the hopes of millions of people for survival and abetter life can turn into anightmare of violence, disease, fear, exclusion and discrimination.Shocking snapshots of everyday life in five slumsin Bangladesh, Pakistan, Kenya, South Africa and Haiti are presented through the lens of renowned photographers who work with the Noor / Apeiron photo agency. Photographs by Alixandra Fazzina, Stanley Greene, Francesco Zizola, Pep Bonet and Jon Lowenstein bring to light the critical humanitarian and medical needs of the residents of these fiveslums where the volunteers of Médecins sans Frontières are currently active.
