It includes work from Dafur, the Lebanon, Gaza, Kosovo, Rwanda and areas hit by the Tsunami. Pellegrin captures both the horror and despair, and his photographs convey the powerlessness of those who are victim to circumstances beyond their control, as they witness the destruction of their homes and the death of their loved ones. These are forceful and unforgetable images that resonate in the memory and give voice to the unbearable suffering of so many people.
