The image regained

When a city is destroyed, (found) portrait photos prove to be of great importance.

The world has been deeply shocked by the recent earthquake in the border region of Turkey and Syria, the human suffering, the destruction, the powerlessness. Photographs of missing people immediately began to circulate: has anyone seen them? On 26 December 2003, the city of Bam in southern Iran was completely destroyed in a similar violent earthquake, which left tens of thousands of people dead. How important photographs have been – and still are – for Bam is the theme of this exhibition.

More information about this exhibition will follow soon.
