"Tell The World About Us" Exhibition in Nobel Peace Centre (Oslo, Norway) about prisoners around the world and on death row in USA. Pictures of Mike Lambrix were included.
Through the bars of his solitary confinement cell in a detention centre
for political prisoners, a prisoner pushed a piece of paper into the
hand of photographer Rune Eraker. There was just one sentence written on
"Tell the world about us"
was in 2001. A decade and a half later, Rune Eraker embarked on a four
year project in which he sought out forgotten prisoners and others who
had had their freedom snatched away.
This exhibition is about them,
those who are imprisoned,
isolated, tortured, steam rollered and sentenced - in the worst cases,
to death. Some for what they believe in.Others are victims of unjust
laws, prejudice, politics, regimes, violence, religion of the
devastation of war.
But the exhibition is also about strength. About courage, the capacity to suffer and endure.
