Jun 26 - 28 Our Buffer Zone Story Photography Exhibition


Our Buffer ZONE STORY photography exhibition

 · Hosted by Unite Cyprus Now
The photography exhibition will be open for 3 days during the Unite Cyprus Now peace protests" After the end of the exhibition the photos will be on sale. 
All proceeds from the photos will be donated to the UCN initiative.

We are a group of Cypriot photographers united by Art. 
We find friendship in each other, we can see our common causes. We acknowledge the mistakes of the past and we feel the pain of the war and division . We need to be together in one Cyprus.
The green line that has kept us apart all these years, is an open wound. Each one of us struck by this symbol of division and pain, has tried to approach it from a photographic point of view It is a part of our homeland.. yet inaccessible, dead, filled by memories and ghosts..
For the last month, the Nicosia buffer zone has come back to life. Both Greek and Turkish Cypriots have been gathering at the buffer zone and demanding PEACE and a reunited Cyprus. This gives us faith for each other, gives us hope for a united future.
We have joined our artistic forces and produced some photos of the buffer zone story.
We would like to exhibit them and share them in that very part of Nicosia the Buffer zone.

We want a solution that safeguards peace and safety.
We want to breath life to the dead zone.
We want to show to the world that we can be together.
