Eight Ways to Change the World at the Bargehouse

Walking from room to room of surrounding, poignant photographs, it would be difficult to leave this exhibition without feeling terribly heart-broken while at the same time undeniably inspired to action.

Zambia: Micah Chansa is 43 years old and HIV+ Since she started ARV therapy in November 2004 she has been able to return to work.

It seems then that Panos Pictures, along with Britain's leading charities, fulfills their purpose of goal number eight of the exhibition, to develop a global partnership.

The exhibit is organised into the eight Millennium Deveopment Goals with simple, striking photographs to illustrate each goal's necessity and immeadiacy.

To add to the realism of the exhibition, there are a few small models or displays correlating to the photographs throughout.

The exhibition's location at the Bargehouse in Oxo Tower Wharf adds an abandoned, lonely and empty feel to the already emotion-evoking exhibit itself.

The exhibition's powerful approach humbly reaveals to all that choose to view it, eight answers in which to transform the quality of life for men, women and children of the seven poorest countries in the world.

The exhibition is free and is open until Sunday 18 September
