The issue of the disputed territory of Western Sahara has slowly disappeared from our consciousness. This exhibition attempts to provoke a discussion on the insightful, mischievious and unforgiving nature of the Media; while re-igniting issues surrounding Western Sahara.  It also displays images of its forgotten people, where a strong community spirit allows them to struggle with dignity in the aftermath of their unimaginable walks of escape from their homeland to the freedom of the refugee camps in Algeria.  Fading memories of loved-ones complimented with physical scars are their only possessions.
