Profiles of Suffering and Survival
A partnership between VII and the International Committee of the Red Cross
The International Committee of the Red Cross, ICRC, together with VII launched a worldwide campaign to raise awareness of today’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. As part of a campaign to mark the 150th anniversary of the Red Cross,
founded in 1863, the ICRC sent five photographers from VII to eight conflict-affected countries to examine up-close the suffering caused by war and violence. An exhibition of the work has been shown in 40 countries.
