In photos: The “Making Peace” public photography exhibition is now on show in Cape Town’s Government Avenue.
The international “Making Peace” travelling exhibition is now on show in Cape Town along Government Avenue, right outside The Company’s Garden.
From our announcement post: “Making Peace promotes awareness and the key elements of sustainable peace, especially amongst the youth, and pays tribute to the countless people who devote their lives to the cause of peace. The group exhibition forming part of the festival was curated by Ashley Woods, formerly from Magnum Photos, and is produced by the International Peace Bureau.”
It’s great to see the works on show in a public area, bringing iconic photography to anyone who happens to walk through the gardens. The exhibition includes works like Charlie Cole’s photo of the “Tank Man of Tiananmen Square”, and Nick Ut’s photo of Kim Phuc fleeing a napalm attack in Vietnam, and many more moving images.
The public exhibition can be found towards the Adderley Street end of Government Avenue, and will be on show until February 2015. The works were printed by Orms Print Room & Framing.
Here’s a look at the exhibition and the ribbon cutting ceremony:
