The Syrian and other refugees streaming into Europe since 2015 have roiled its politics and tested its tolerance. But they’re just the latest of many waves of immigrants since World War II. Indians in Britain, Algerians in France, Somalis in Sweden are some of the immigrants who are reshaping the continent. Commissioned by National Geographic Magazine, Robin Hammond travelled through Europe to tell the stories of ‘The New Europeans.’
Send CONDEMNED, the book, to someone who can make a difference on this issue - a person with power. There are some organisations working hard with few resources to help people with mental disability in African countries in crisis. You can help them.
"Robin Hammond's book, produced with assistance from the Carmignac Foundation, is a true work of classic photojournalism. Poignant and moving, telling but not insensitive, Hammond's work reveals the darker demons of Mugabe's chokehold on Zimbabwe. Where words fail, Hammond's photographs pick up — pulling no punches about the lives destroyed by violence and cruelty. The realities shared in the book are hard to swallow but even harder to ignore."
