War Zone Freelance Exhibition

The War Zone Freelance Exhibition is dedicated to the work of local and international freelance journalists covering conflicts by showing their work, sharing their experiences and provoking debate on the important and consequential role freelance journalists play in bringing news out of conflict areas to the international public.

After spending years working alongside other freelance colleagues, Danish writer and reporter Anne Alling, American photojournalist Osie Greenway, German writer and photojournalist Benjamin Hiller and Dutch videographer and photojournalist Jeffry Ruigendijk, propose an exhibition that pulls people deep into the reporting process; educates on the people who have been affected by war in the Middle East region; and highlights both the struggles and triumphs of working independently in a high-stakes vocation.

Detailed information about exhibition dates and locations, about the journalists behind this initiative and additional pictures and videos are available on the War Zone Freelance Exhibition website.
