A major exhibition showcasing the work of eight Magnum Photographers, documenting contemporary slavery across the globe
"Slavery in the contemporary world is what it has been since the beginning of human history - the complete control of one person by another. Violence is at the heart of that control, and the aim is profit
- Kevin Bales, President of Free the Slaves
Today, over 200 years after the abolition of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, an estimated 27 million people worldwide are still locked into slavery and servitude across the globe. This major photography exhibition, organised in collaboration with Autograph ABP and Hayward Touring, took an in-depth look at the prevalence of slavery and injustice in the 21st century through the lenses of eight internationally acclaimed Magnum photographers. The exhibition began at the Royal Festival, Southbank Centre and toured to venues across the UK.
