    Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


    Bringing together over 40 award winning photographers including Rankin, Martin Parr, Sophie Gerard, Pieter Hugo and Graciela Iturbide, We Feed the World captures the triumphs and tribulations of the small-holder farmers who produce over 70% of the world’s food. Launching at the Bargehouse Gallery, Southbank on 11th October and opening to the public on Friday 12th October, We Feed the World documents the lives of nearly 50 farming communities across six continents. A selection of the 400+ images, together with their inspirational stories, will be shown in London until Sunday 21st October and be accompanied by an exciting programme of talks and events, soon to be announced. At the same time, all of the participating farming communities will receive exhibition packs in order to display We Feed the World wherever they are, breaking the Guinness World Record for the number of simultaneous photographic exhibitions held at any one time. The exhibition aims to challenge the myth that we need industrial agriculture and quick-fix technologies to feed an ever-increasing population. Rowan Phillimore from The Gaia Foundation explains: “These world-renowned photographers capture agroecology in action for the first time. Agroecology is the future of farming. It is agriculture (farming) practised in a way that respects ecology (all the living things). We must stand up to the multi-million pound marketing budgets of agri-businesss to set the record straight because it is small-holder, agro-ecological farming that holds the answers to many of the world’s problems – from climate change and fertile soils, to public health & wellbeing.”
