Journey into the lives and landscape of the people of Darfur, Sudan, in this extraordinary multimedia exhibition, consisting of over 150 haunting images projected onto the façade of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.
Created in September 2006 by American architect Leslie Thomas to bring the story of the Darfur crisis to the attention of the public and the media, DARFUR/DARFUR showcases colour and black-and-white photographs of village and refugee life, including bombing, the military response, and intimate portraits of those trying to survive the ongoing humanitarian crisis. Photographs taken by former U.S. Marine Brian Steidle and photojournalists Lynsey Addario, Mark Brecke, Helene Caux, Ron Haviv, Paolo Pellegrin, Ryan Spencer Reed, and Michal Safdie, help provide a visual interpretation of this rich cultural area. Edited by J. Matthew Jacob.
Edited projections will appear on the outside of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, accompanied by traditional Sudanese music, from dusk to 11:00 pm every evening. An additional unedited presentation will be displayed inside the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal lobby.
