“Nowhere People” Exhibit Opens with Discussion on the Ethics of Photography for Social Change
Photograph by Greg Constantine
Nowhere People, a traveling exhibition by photographer Greg Constantine, will be on view at Duke University’s Kenan Institute for Ethics from November 1 through November 20. In 2005 Constantine moved to Asia to begin work on the project, which documents the struggles of ethnic minority groups who have had their citizenship denied or taken away, leaving millions of people around the world stateless. Constantine received three grants from the United Nations High Council on Refugees in order to complete the project.
The exhibit will open with a panel discussion on the ethics of photography for social change with Constantine, UN council representative Charity Tooze, Center for Documentary Studies
director Tom Rankin, and Duke pediatrician John Moses, M.D., a CDS instructor.
Panel discussion and exhibit opening
Thursday, November 1, 5:30 p.m.–7 p.m.
101 West Duke Building, Kenan Institute for Ethics
1364 Campus Dr., Durham, North Carolina
Photographs from Constantine’s Nowhere People project have received the Society of Publishers in Asia Award, Days Japan Special Jury Prize, the Human Rights Press Award, and were shortlisted for the Amnesty International Media Award for Photojournalism. The first two books in a series from the project—Kenya’s Nubians: Then & Now and Exiled To Nowhere: Burma’s Rohingya—were released in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
