IRAQ. Albu Ajeel, Salahaddin Province. February 3, 2016. Balasim, a Sunni villager from Albu Ajeel, survived a deadly attempt to flee Islamic State controlled area near Hawijah in which two people, including the mother of the young boy he is holding, were killed after stepping on a mine. Balasim carried the boy in his arms during the entire journey, and was photographed in a burned out house in Albu Ajeel shortly after reaching the safety of this village. © Moises Saman/Magnum Photos

Slideshow, Presentation and Q&A

In his slideshow presentation as part of the Baobab Centre’s 2017 Lecture Series, David Kogan will talk about the work of Magnum and the role of photojournalism in covering the stories of those uprooted by conflict and their journeys in search of safety. He will focus on the coverage of refugee crises over the last seventy years, but particularly on the last three years and on what we, as individuals and collective groups can do.

The Baobab Centre for Young Survivors in Exile provides psychotherapeutic support for child, adolescent and young adult asylum seekers who have directly experienced violence in their home countries. More than 90% of the young people who attend the centre arrive in the UK alone.
