I spent a long, hot, tiring, sweaty, ill-themed and emotionally draining 8 days travelling across Southern Ethiopia in October 2018 and it was all in aid of this. I can’t believe it’s finally here - PODO - the exhibition.
It opens this week on London’s South Bank at Gallery@Oxo (bottom of the Oxo tower) and is on from 24th April to 5th May. PLEASE come along if you are in town and passing through, I promise it will be worth it. Free entry, new work which I’m very proud of and you can only see in print until after the exhibition.
This is all for a very good cause and the whole project is about raising awareness of a terrifying skin disease called Podoconiosis. Find out more about the problem at my charity partner’s website: www.actiononpodo.com The aim of this work was to challenge the viewer through revealing the humanity within every sufferer of Podo - a disease which so often makes victims ‘unhuman’.
Watch this space for more news and updates but in the meantime, please come along and let me know what you think (nb. I won’t be there in person every day).
