Rauli Virtanen’s documentary photography exhibition has a 50-year timeline. The oldest photos date from the autumn of 1972, when he travelled to Vietnam to report on the war there. The most recent pictures are from Ukraine and Taliban-ruled Afghanistan, where Virtanen has visited more than a dozen times over the decades.
The comprehensive exhibition includes many of the pictures Virtanen has taken on his reporting trips to numerous war zones. But the main focus is on the unknown and forgotten victims of conflicts and crises, from refugees and child labourers to child soldiers, and the ordinary people of developing countries, whom Virtanen photographs with empathy.
There are also many historic moments from the revolutions in Romania and Nicaragua, and people Virtanen meets, from Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali to Richard Nixon, Fidel Castro, Tito and Yasser Arafat.
The many friendly faces of the multicultural world and the joy and hopefulness of children are the mood-lifters on these touching walls of images.
Rauli Virtanen (b. 1948) is a long-standing foreign journalist, non-fiction writer, photojournalist and television producer.
