ÉBOLA – DANIEL BEREHULAK
27 MARCH – 24 MAY
Sala La Muralla
One year after the official declaration of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa (March 23, 2014), Photon Festival shows for the first time in Spain Ebola work of Daniel Berehulak, Australian photojournalist internationally awarded for his coverage for The New York Times.
From March 27 to May 24, the exhibition shows about 50 pictures taken during the 100 days that Daniel Berehulak worked covering the consequences of the epidemic in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
The photographs include portraits in black and white of health workers who risked their lives to save others and color images that explain exhaustively everyday difficulties in the midst of an epidemic that has claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people and remains active after having affected more than 24,000 people. With images of the urban environment and rural, Berehulak graphically describes a hard overview of the epidemic.
The international festival of photojournalism PhotOn Festival produces this work first comes to Europe after being exposed earlier in New York. The presentation of Ebola begins the V festival edition that will continue in the week of Photon activities from 4 to 9 May 2015 with talks, projections, portfolio review sessions and exhibition circuit for the main cultural spaces in the center of Valencia as IVAM, the Cultural Centre La Nau of the University of Valencia or the Central Market.
