"Tell the world about us"

"Tell the world about us" opens on 13 July, at 3.30pm, at the Portuguese Photography Centre; it is a photographic exhibit on lost freedom and on human dignity by Norwegian photographer Rune Eraker.

Through the bars of his solitary cell, in a political prisoner's prison, a prisoner was able to get through a piece of paper to the outside world, when a guard was momentarily distracted; it read: "Tell the world we exist". The year was 2001.

"This anonymous cry of help in Colombia stripped me of my inner peace, and the discomfort of having met him, and many others like him, forced me, in a way, to act. This was a four year project, where I have looked for other forgotten prisoners, whose freedom was stolen", affirms Rune Eraker.
