Exhibition • LSE Law, London, UK.
Eleven photojournalists have combined their unique perspectives in a collective exhibition and a book of their work: “The Itinerary - Tracing the Refugee Routes”. They record the trek of refugees from their point of origin – the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa– to their final destinations in Europe through various stopover sites –the Aegean Islands, Athens, Idomeni, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Serbia, Hungary: the so-called "Balkan Route". The photographs capture the struggles but also the everyday small joys and humdrum details of refugees’ lives during their journey: sharing bread in abandoned factories, the piles of life-jackets, the wedding stores in the camps, the restless nights by the boat, the suffocating tents and treacherous waters. The end of this journey is not yet in sight. With their collective work, these eleven eyewitnesses aim at making everyone aware of one of the greatest humanitarian disasters of our time.
This exhibition is organised and supported by LSE Law, in association with LSE Arts.
On Monday, 12 June at 6.30pm LSE Law will host an opening event and reception with introductions by Emmanuel Melissaris, Dimitrios Bouras, and Derek Hudson at the LSE Atrium. The audience will also have the chance to discuss with the contributors to the exhibition about their work.
The photojournalists whose work features in the exhibition and the book are:

LSE Law is delighted to team up with Mike’s Table for the exhibition opening event dinner. Named after our late colleague Mike Redmayne, Professor of Law at LSE, Mike’s Table hosts pop-up supper clubs. Three-course meals are devised and prepared on the night, using donated food that would otherwise go to waste. Mike’s table is a non-profit social enterprise. The supper club ticket funds the same restaurant experience for someone else, for free. LSE Catering have very kindly supported hosting Mike’s Table at the LSE.
