Vidas Minadas: Living with Mines : Until 22 January 2012

Vidas Minadas | gallery@oxo | Oxo Tower Wharf | South Bank

Award-winning photojournalist Gervasio Sánchez has been working since 1995 to raise awareness about the devastating humanitarian impact of landmines.

Landmines not only kill and severely disable thousands of people every year, but also prevent farmers from working on their land and children from going to school, often impeding much needed economic development for years after a conflict has ended.

Vidas Minadas: Living with Mines tells the stories of landmine survivors from Cambodia, Angola, Mozambique, Bosnia, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Iraq and Colombia, where there are still high numbers of landmine casualties 14 years after the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention was signed.

This six-week exhibition has been brought to London by the Office for Cultural and Scientific Affairs at the Embassy of Spain and The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.
