A JOURNEY HOME: SEAN SUTTON OF MAG


Set in Sri Lanka over 10 years, this exhibition tells the story of claering mines, land release, enabling returns and building lives in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. These powerful black and white images were captured by photojournalist Sean Sutton while working for MAG.

“I have spent the last 22 years photographing communities in the most impoverished places on earth. I did this because I wanted to try and make a difference by showing the public and the decision makers the realities that people face.”

“Try to imagine raising your family in a minefield. You have no choice and nowhere else to go. You have to risk treading the land. One day a MAG team arrives and removes the surrounding threat of death, enabling you to grow food, build a house and send your children to school in safety. Would that change your life?

That’s what this exhibition is about. It’s not all about doom and gloom. It’s about hope, humanity and courage.”
SEAN SUTTON
