World-Renowned Photographers to Exhibit Images from the Front Lines of the War in Libya in Effort to Promote Reconciliation.
Less than a year after the end of the Libyan war, and yet in the middle of its consequences, world renowned war photographers are back in Libya to promote the project “ADIL – Almost Dawn in Libya”. It comprises in a series of four exhibits in Libya’s major cities of Misurata, Benghazi, Tripoli, and Zintan.
ADIL – that in arabic also means “Fairness” – an original idea by André Liohn with the photographers Lynsey Addario, Eric Bouvet, Bryan Denton, Christopher Morris, Jehad Nga and Finbarr O’Reilly, will present to the Libyan public 93 frontline photographs produced during the 8 months of the Libyan revolution that culminated with the death of Muammar Gaddafi in October 20th 2011.
The project was organized by the photographers themselves with Prospekt agency and the curatorial guidance signed by editor Annalisa D’Angelo and Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin.
During the exhibitions, ADIL, in partnership with local individuals and local and international NGO’s as International Medical Corps, will promote meetings and workshops trying to foster dialogue, in an effort to promote peace, rebuilding and a return to self-reliance.
“Photography is an extremely valuable communication instrument because it is universally accessible and understood and it bridges socio-economic and linguistic barriers,” says André Liohn, Overseas Press Club of America’s 2012 Robert Capa Award winner and creator of ADIL. “In the aftermath of a civil war, photography can support people’s struggles in dealing with the painful past, in designing a shared vision of the future. Photographs are witnesses of the broken relations and can contribute to the healing of societies.”
As a gesture of gratitude and respect, the Misurata council will prepare a tribute in honor of the photojournalists Chris Hondros, Tim Hetherington, Anton Hammerl and cameramen Ali Hassan al-Jaber and Gamal al Gwery killed in Libya during the upraising. The journalists Marie Colvin, Anthony Shadid and Rémi Ochlik who also covered the Libyan war, but died earlier this year in Syria, will also be remembered.
