Political photojournalism has never been so vital, with 2014 having already seen striking images from Ukraine and Syria hit our TV screens, inboxes and consciousness. Horrifying images from inside the situations have permeated the media, making the conflicts more ‘real’, or at least highlighting that they exist. Ed Kashi has travelled the world to bring numerous issues to light, including racial profiling, life-sapping drought in Oklahoma and the epidemic of Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown origin in Central America. His latest work documents some of the approximately 875,000 Azerbaijanis who were displaced by the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict over two decades ago. The exhibition is free and showing at the Oxo Tower Wharf for just four days – short and sweet, like all the best things.
