Alessio Romenzi, William Daniels, Paul Conroy, Remi Ochlik, Mani and Syrian anonymous photographers
In 2012 the Tbilisi Photo Festival has decided to devote a large exhibition to photo-journalism from the Syrian uprising – an extremely unique endeavour, given the government’s almost total blackout on allowing media access. Withthousands killed so far, the world needs to bear witness to this unfolding tragedy. From the besieged city of Homs, the Tbilisi Photo Festival is pleased to feature William Daniels (Panos Pictures), Paul Conroy, Alessio Romenzi, Mani and the late Rémi Ochlik who lost his life during the shelling of a media centre in Homs. Syria: Testimonials will also feature pictures never before seen taken by anonymous Syrians within the surrounded city itself.
