“The men who learn endurance, are they who call the whole world brother.” - ‘Barnaby Rudge’ by Charles Dickens. This powerful photographic exhibition takes the theme of human endurance in many forms and from across the world.

The stories featuring in the show include a tiny country threatened by rising sea levels; child labour in India; architectural remnants of the Cold War; injustices experienced by the Saharawi people; the aftermath of the Kashmir earthquake; a gruelling Eritrean cycle race; Hasidic holidaying in Aberystwyth and portraits of weather-beaten fishermen of the dwindling Belgian fishing fleet.  

The works are by photographers represented by Panos Pictures - a photo agency specialising in global social issues. These photographers include; GMB Akash; Chloe Dewe Mathews; Robin Hammond; Chris Keulen; Andrew McConnell; Espen Rasmussen; Martin Roemers; Stephan Vanfleteren.
