Caught in the Crossfire


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A striking collection of photographs that expose the levels of armed violence around the world taken by some of the worldâs best-known conflict photographers.

The exhibition, Caught in the Crossfire, will be held simultaneously in major cities around the world throughout October. During this time world leaders will meet at the UN in New York to decide whether to put in place tougher controls on the global arms trade, in the form an Arms Trade Treaty.

Statistics show that one thousand people are killed every day as a result of armed violence. There are enough bullets in circulation around the world to shoot every person at least twice.

The exhibition includes work from top international news photographers, including Guy Tillim, Andrew Testa, Jenny Matthews, Tuen Voeten and Zed Nelson.

The exhibition has been organised by the Control Arms campaign (a joint initiative of Oxfam International, Amnesty International and the International Action Network on Smalls Arms).
