  • [01] UNHCR PHOTO EXHIBITION LARNACA

    A photographic exhibition entitled Refugees: Real People, Real Needs, organised by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), will be in Larnaca on Tuesday, the last leg of a tour of the island.

    The Mayor of Larnaca Andreas Moiseos and the representative of the UNHCR in Cyprus will inaugurate the exhibition which will run from 18 August until 3 September, at the Finikoudes Promenade.

    The exhibition consists mainly of a selection of the most powerful winning photos of World Press Photo (WPP), shedding light on the situations which create refugees. By putting a face behind the unknown masses of refugees, the UNHCR has said, the exhibition attempts to foster understanding and empathy, to fight prejudices and wrongly built stereotypes about people who were forced to flee their homelands and they are in need of international protection.

    Larnaca Mayor Andreas Moiseos told CNA on Tuesday that the exhibition touches on an issue for which the Cypriot people feel strongly about, as some 200 thousand people became refugees in their own homeland in the wake of the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus.

    He said refugees have to deal with a very harsh reality, noting that people need to become enlightened about it and support refugees.

    The photos on display mainly consist of a selection of the most impressive winning photos of World Press Photo (WPP) depicting situations which create refugees. WPP is an independent non-profit organization based in Amsterdam organizing the worlds largest and most prestigious annual press photography contest.

    Within the framework of the open air photographic exhibition, artist Georgia Evagorou is the only Cypriot who participates with her work in the exhibition.
