Hard Truths: An Exhibition of Prize-Winning Photography from The New York Times

Hosted by LSE Arts

Atrium Gallery, Old Building

LSE’s Institute of Global Affairs is delighted to host 'Hard Truths', an exhibition of prize-winning photography from The New York Times.

The exhibit showcases the work of five outstanding New York Times photojournalists, who have taken great risks capturing events and their effects on people around the world. The photographs bear witness to humanitarian crises, conflicts and transitions from Venezuela, Iraq, Syria, the Philippines, Cuba and Iran, while uncovering the human stories at heart.

'Hard Truths' has been co-curated by David Furst of The New York Times and Arthur Ollman from the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography.

Twitter Hashtag for this exhibition: #LSENYT 

Follow #LSENYT for a series of debates connecting the photos to cutting-edge research and policy on key global challenges.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts website.
