Photography as a tool for reconciliation
Last week CNN ran an interview with photographer André Liohn about the group project “Almost Dawn in Libya” that André has initiated. ADIL is an exhibition project curated by Paolo Pellegrin and Annalisa D’Angelo using photography as a tool for reconciliation in Libya. With the help of local organizations the project aims to bring four exhibitions to four Libyan cities – Benghazi, Misratah, Tripoli and Zintan.
Lynsey Addario, Eric Bouvet, Bryan Denton, Christopher Morris, Jehad Nga, Finbarr O’Reilly and Paolo Pellegrin, who all covered the Libyan conflict in the country and along the borders, joined forces to create a neutral arena were different people, with different opinions, expectations and experiences of the war, will be invited to see and react to how independent eyes saw their reality. They want to expand the lifespan of their images and bring them back to the very people they photographed.
They are two thirds of the way already, but need to raise an additional $4,600 within the next three weeks to make the project see the light of day.
With Paolo Pellegrin’s signed art print, that was offered as the $1,500 reward, already gone, André Liohn has decided to offer one of his signed art prints as a new reward to help them reach their funding goal.
