SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER

Cooperation between the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation & IG Halle Rapperswil. SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER is not only a photo exhibition, but also part of a large human rights education program. The combination of these three photographic positions allows for a tension-loaded inside views into the fields of power and human rights. At the center, the viewer will find portraits of international human rights defenders by the Pulitzer Price winning photograph Eddie Adams. Those portraits were done for Kerry Kennedy's book «Speak Truth To Power: Human Rights Defenders Who Are Changing Our World». Zurich photographer Luca Zanier offers unusual insights into rooms of power in his portfolio «Corridors of Power». These empty rooms with their cool and geometric aesthetic - even perfect symmetry - form a strong counterpart to the action filled photographs of Paolo Pellegrin of war, conflict, and suffering.
