Tell the World about us
An Exhibition by Photographer Rune Eraker about lost liberty and human dignity.
In 2001, photographer Rune Eraker was in Colombia to document the conditions under which political prisoners were being held. In a moment when the guards were not looking, one of the prisoners managed to thrust a note through the bars of his cell and give it to Eraker. The note simply said: "Tell the world about us”.
17 years later, this plea resulted in an exhibition at the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo.
Eraker travelled to 15 different countries over a number of years to take pictures for the exhibition. His imposing black & white portraits are accompanied by texts written by journalist Linda Hove Strand.
