The Evacuation - Paolo Pellegrin, Magnum
As part of Paolo Pellegrin's ongoing Israel and Palestine project, in The Evacuation we are unusually confronted with images of conflict between Israeli soldiers and Israeli civilians. This Magnum photo-essay documents the evacuation of Kfar Darom, a devout and ideologically staunch Israeli settlement, during the period of the planned evacuation of Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip and West Bank in 2005.

Bangkok Unrest
Images from eight international photo-journalists documenting the conflict in Bangkok in 2010. Protests initiated by the National United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship led to a violent military crackdown in what the Thai media called "Cruel April" and "Savage May". The horrors brought about by a tyrannical military force are shown here. Soundtrack by Funki Porcini. Curated by Françoise Callier.

Theme Culture

Burma: Behind the Conflict
A photo-essay comprising images of Burma by a selection of esteemed Magnum photographers. The photo-essay displays images of this beautiful and troubled country before last year's conflict surrounding the military-backed staged elections. The images are accompanied by a commentary outlining the historical background to the oppressive ruling military junta by columnist and author Brendan I Koerner.

Haiti Aftermath
Four pre-eminent photojournalists document the disorder and despair in the aftermath of Haiti's 2010 earthquake. These disturbing images reveal the infrastructural, social and emotional chaos in the wake of a natural disaster which claimed 300,000 Haitian lives. Curated by Francois Callier of the Angkor Photo Festival with a soundtrack by Fever Ray and Massive Attack.

Iraq is Flying
Jamal Penjweny's photo-essay offers a glimpse of hope and innocence amongst the conflict. Iraq is Flying is a testament to the strength and resilience of the Iraqi people who have survived the Western invasion and war which killed over 100,000 of their fellow citizens. The photographs taken on the streets of Sulaymaniyah, Baghdad, Babil, Fallujah, Kirku and Amara reveal the humanity behind the statistics and stereotypical media images of Iraqi people, presenting individuals just like us who like to muck about and have a laugh as much as anyone else. "I wanted to give Iraq's energetic people a chance to regain their dignity, to let them jump beyond the setting of their lives and show how we all carry a bit of the child still within us. I wanted all Iraq's people to fly"… Jamal Penjweny.

Iraq is Flying will also be on show at Northart Gallery on Sunday 5 & Monday 6 June
