2018 marks 70 years since the expulsion and displacement of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes, villages and cities during the one-year conflict that created Israel in 1948. Since then, the Nakba (catastrophe), as it is known in Arabic to Palestinians, has been engraved in Palestinian collective consciousness as a story of relentless dispossession.
We are proud to share this new digital plateform where NOOR's Tanya Habjouqa collaborated together Amnesty International in producing this immersive photo-story on 70 years of Palestinian displacement.
Documenting Diversity: Staying Woke and Making Pictures A Panel Discussion with photographers Nina Berman, Lola Flash, and Ruddy Roye
Wednesday, October 17, 2018 6:30-8:30 pm NYU Tisch School of the Arts 721 Broadway, New York, NY Dean's Conference Room, 12th Floor
This event is co-sponsored with the NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Department of Photography and Imaging.
How do photographers authentically and confidently approach image-making when the photographer, audience, and subjects can be from diverse racial, class, and gender origins? How do photographers present their subjects in a way that ensures dignity, empowerment and inclusion? How do documentary photographers stay focused on issues that raise awareness of the social and political environment and get involved to influence the outcomes of these situations?
Presentations and panel discussion followed by a reception. Nina Berman will be signing copies of “An Autobiography of Miss Wish.”
NOOR photographer Kadir van Lohuizen was invited to present a talk about his project Via Pan Am: Migration In The Americas at TEDxMaastricht. In the spirit of the TED concept of ideas worth spreading, Kadir shared his experiences creating the Via PanAm project, in which he traveled from Chile to Alaska, covering 15 countries along the Pan-American Highway, to visually investigate migration in the Americas.

Today, no one any longer doubts that glaciers the world over are retreating, and even more worryingly that Greenland and Antartica are melting at an increasing pace. The question: how fast is it going? It is alarming that past figures appear to have been too conservative and humanity should start preparing for the biggest displacement of mankind in known history. As people in all of the world’s regions become displaced at ever growing scales, the biggest question is: where will they go?
For one and half year Kadir van Lohuizen has been looking at the global consequences of rising sea levels caused by climate change. He traveled to Kiribati, Fiji, the Carteret Atoll in Papua New Guinea, Bangladesh, the Guna Yala coastline in Panama, the United Kingdom and the United States. In these different regions Kadir not only looked at the areas that are affected or will be affected, but also where people will likely have to relocate to. Coastal erosion, inundation, worse and more frequent coastal surges and contamination of drinking water mean increasingly that people have to flee their homes and lands in a growing number of locales across the world. The human costs of these movements are dramatic in the extreme. The Rising Sea Levels project is designed to highlight both the immense complexities associated with in-island and inter-island/country movement, as well as the specific human rights implications involved with such involuntary movements.
