People of Mercy Exhibition by Stephan Vanfleteren
5th October 2017 at 1:00 pm - 10th December 2017 at 6:00 pm CESTEuro8
International renowned Belgian photographer Stephan Vanfleteren is having an exhibition of a touching selection of portraits with which he won the World Press Photo Award in the category “Staged Portraits” in 2013, adding also new ones, taken on various Hospital Mercy ships, that provide free medical aid (operations, treatments, …) in Africa. The images are often very confronting, dealing with the transience of life and the terrible injuries some medical conditions can inflict, physically but also mentally and socially . Total proceedings will be used to the benefit of free medical treatment aboard the Mercy ships. The exhibition takes place in a unique setting, in the hold of barge “La Laurande” (from 1928).
