In a collaboration between the Iraqi journalist Naseem Hussein and Swedish photographer Marcus Gyllborg, a unique footage from the war in Iraq is displayed in the exhibition ”IRAQ BETWEEN PAIN AND HOPE”. The exhibition is produced by Scandinavian Photo Print and takes place in Österängens Art Gallery.
Naseem Hussein came as a refugee to Sweden and Jönköping ten months ago. He documented the consequences of terrorist groups ravages, conditions in the refugee camps and children's conditions in a country torn apart by war and conflict since the invasion in 2003. He has also documented his own escape to Europe with mobile camera.
The exhibition "IRAQ BETWEEN PAIN AND HOPE" also shows images of Naseem Hussein's brother, Namir Noor-Eldeen, a freelance photographer with assignments for Reuters, who was killed in an air attack by US troops in 2007.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Naseem Hussein will hold a lecture on the terms for journalists in terror-hit countries on Tuesday, May 10 at 18:00.
The exhibition runs:
May 5 to 15
Thursday, May 5 at 17:00
Opening Speaker: Anna Hållams, Press Photographer
