Photo exhibition from Malta “EXODUS ACROSS THE MEDITERRANEAN”
[open]

Between 2002 and 2015, several thousand immigrants fleeing from Africa to the European mainland inadvertently ended up on Malta’s shores. The desperate people struggle to reach Italy in tiny, barely seaworthy boats. Thousands have drowned during the crossing, one of the most dangerous migration routes on the planet. Throughout that time, Darrin Zammit Lupi kept trying to remind the world about what was happening around his home island of Malta: rescues far out at sea, tragedy at sea and on land, migrants arriving on Malta’ s shores. He spent time with them in detention centres, and extensively covered their lives once they were set free. In late 2014, he self-published a book “Isle Landers,” and has continued to document the plight of asylum seekers crossing from Libya to Europe, as well as following the trail others take from the Greek islands and across the Balkans.
