Too Young To Wed

LSE Arts public exhibition

Date: Monday 21 July - 2pm on Friday 1 August 2014 
Time: 10am- 8pm, Mon-Fri (2pm close on Friday 1 August)
Venue: Atrium Gallery, Old Building

Photographer, Stephanie Sinclair, b.1973, has documented the issue of child marriage for more than a decade. She lived in the Middle East for six years and began her work on child marriage after encountering young women who had set themselves on fire in Afghanistan and learning that many of these girls had been married underage.

The resulting photographic exhibition, Too Young To Wed, produced in association with UNFPA, has been published and exhibited around the world. The Department for International Development is delighted to bring an abridged version of the exhibit to the UK for the first time. 

This exhibition will form part of the British government’s Girl Summit, which took place in London on 22 July 2014.
