Photography exhibition at UFV

Exhibit reveals faces and accounts of human trafficking survivors.

An photography exhibition entitled Betrayed: Portraits of Strength is being featured for a very limited run in UFV’s Library rotunda.

Running until Sept. 30, this inaugural debut of the exhibit reveals the faces and first-person accounts of human trafficking survivors.

Taken by renowned photographer Tony Hoare in Bangladesh, Sierra Leone and Mexico, the powerful photographs are paired with first-person accounts from the subjects themselves. Some recount tales of being stolen while enjoying tea, others tell stories of harrowing escapes after being sold into prostitution. However, the common thread is their stories of survival.

This project is ongoing, and stories from Europe, Canada, and South America will be added to the collection as the exhibit continues touring in upcoming months.

Betrayed: Portraits of Strength is hosted by UFV’s Centre for Indo Canadian Studies at the University of the Fraser Valley and supported by the BC Ministry of Justice.
