The London Festival of Photography presents The Gaddafi Archives- Libya Before The Arab Spring an exhibition which will shed light on Libya's recent history through carefully collated photographs, documents, artefacts and videos.
The Arab Spring brought about tumultuous change in the region, much of which was broadcasted around the world, despite attempts by various regimes to blackout media communications.
Through carefully collated photographs, documents, artefacts and videos this exhibition will shed light on the recent history of Libya, starting with the reign of King Idris and spanning the regime of Colonel Gaddafi.
The exhibition will highlight photography’s role in recording and documenting, as well as portraying an important period in Libya’s history that we can only now begin to truly understand. This exhibition will present pictures and documents from Gaddafi's residences and state intelligence ministries, collected by Human Rights Watch emergencies director Peter Bouckaert and photographed by photojournalists.
