Nick Danziger is a world-renowned photojournalist, author and activist who has spent the past 25 years documenting the world’s most dispossessed and disadvantaged people. His photographs have appeared in newspapers and magazines worldwide, toured museums and galleries internationally, and are held in numerous collections, including the National Portrait Gallery, London. He has won several awards including the World Press Photo 1st Prize 2004 in the Single Portrait Award for his ‘mirror’ image of Prime Minister Tony Blair and President George W. Bush. In 2007, he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society, and he holds the Royal Geographical Society’s Ness Award for raising public understanding of social, political and environmental issues.
In 2005, Nick travelled to eight countries, across four continents, to document the lives of poor women and children. He returned five years later – and then again in 2015 – to assemble a stark and extraordinary portrait of life on the fringes of some of the world’s poorest places. This exhibition, ‘Revisited 2005-2010-2015’, will be shown in Canberra from Thursday February 15 to Sunday April 8 at the Drill Hall Gallery, The Australian National University. The gallery is open from 10am to 5pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
This exhibition is supported by the Development Policy Centre, Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU.
