The Human Price of War

July 17 - 30 Oct 2017

Two years of conflict in Yemen have devastated the country, 18 million people are in need of humanitarian help. It is the largest food security emergency in the world. The UN says more than 7,600 people - mostly civilians - have been killed and some 42,000 others injured since the conflict between forces loyal to exiled President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi supported by Saudi-led coalition and those allied to the Houthi rebel movement escalated in March 2015.

Maria Turchenkova was one of very few journalists who entered the country during this period and her photography affords us an insight into the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in Yemen, one which remains absent from the international emergency agenda and mainstream media.
