Darfur-Darfur: A Photographic Essay
DARFUR-DARFUR is a traveling exhibit that provides a visual education about the richly multi-cultural region of Sudan’s western region of Darfur, while exposing the magnitude of the ongoing humanitarian crisis. The digitally- projected, changing images, along with other scheduled events and programs, are certain to raise awareness and empower the visitors to mobilize and voice their concern.
The exhibit, edited by J. Matthew Jacob and curated by Leslie Thomas, presents photographs taken in Darfur, Sudan, by former U.S. Marine Brian Steidle/Polaris and photojournalists Lynsey Addario, Mark Brecke, Helene Caux, Ron Haviv/VII, Paolo Pellegrin/Magnum, Ryan Spencer Reed, and Michal Ronnen Safdie.
The Detroit Public Library is leading the City of Detroit in dialogue to the need for the immediate resolution of conflict and injustice in Darfur.
