|Tickets on Sale for 20 November 2008 Launch of Kurds: Through the Photographer’s Lens|
Lord Eric Avebury invites you to the launch of Kurds: Through the Photographer’s Lens, which will be taking place at London’s stylish SW1 Gallery at 7.30 pm on 20 November 2008. Celebrating 15 years of the Kurdish Human Rights Project, the night will raise funds and awareness for the organisation’s activities. There will be an exhibition of images from the book and comedian Mark Thomas will be auctioning these, along with copies of the publication itself signed by contributors including Harold Pinter.
This unique collaboration celebrates the life and times of the Kurdish people over the past 15 years as seen through the eyes of some of the most prominent photographers and photo journalists who have worked across the Kurdish regions, including Susan Meiselas, Jan Grarup, Ed Kashi, and Patrick Robert.
Tickets for the event are £75 per person, including food, drinks and a complimentary copy of the book, and can be purchased from the KHRP website here.
