SNAPSHOT: Aftershock

This photograph, taken last April, forms part of an exhibition called 'Armenia and Karabagh: the aftermath', which aims to convey the paltry aid given to the region since the effects of an earthquake that killed 25,000 people in 1988. Photographer Paul Mellor said the exhibition serves as a warning that in the aftermath of the earthquake in Iran on Boxing Day, the international aid community that must help rebuild the city of Bam as well as providing emergency assistance. The exhibition of 36 photos will be held for one month from this Friday at Hooper's Gallery in Clerkenwell, London. Family Care, a small Armenian charity, will receive around £25,000 from the sale of 25 limited edition prints of each exhibit to help pay for training of medical staff and to refurbish a ward at the children's hospital in Karabagh.
