Surfing the web, I found the photography project of the well known Sebastiao Salgado titled “Humanity in transition
” centered on migratory movements. Impressive, larger than life portraits of this reality, springing from the will of the photographer, as he himself says, "I want to speak out for immigrants, for those who live in such circumstances, and to speak out to those who can receive them. I want to show the immigrants' dignity in their willingness to integrate into another country, to show their courage and their entrepreneurial spirit and, not least, to demonstrate how they enrich us all with their individual differences."
An outstanding, eternal show
of great virtousity. I would encourage you to dedicate a few minutes of your time to feel a part, for one momento, of the extraordinary family which makes up Humanity. Read More

The photograph exhibition “Ghosts of the Sahara”, winner of the most recent World Press Photo, is at the Joaquin Roncal Center from 3 to the 28 May.
This photography project organized by Médicos del Mundo
aims to translate into citizenship the concerns and hopes of the Sahrawi people living in refugee camps and in parts of the Western Sahara controlled by Morocco.
Through the snapshots and testimonies compiled by the Irish photographer Andrew McConnell, winner of the 12th Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Prize, the exhibition shows how the Sahrawi people have been living in exile and under occupation for 34 years.
“Ghosts of the Sahara” attempts to stir the visitor to shed light on the Sahrawi people and their territory so that they are not forgotten. In order to be able to see the photographs the visitor will have to shine a torch on them, which is provided at the entrance. By doing this visitors are invited to become involved and to play a part in ensuring that the Sahrawi people do not remain invisible.
