Human trafficking, slavery and sexual exploitation – it’s a harsh reality and a vast, global issue.
In July 2018, professional photographer Tenille Salmon travelled to Cambodia with Project Futures (a small not-for-profit charity whose mission is to give hope by transforming lives of victims), to shine a light on the growing issue through her documentation of the lives of the affected women and children.
The new exhibition at aMBUSH Gallery, ‘Project Futures I Threads of Hope’, seeks to connect people to the everyday experiences of hundreds of thousands of these Cambodians via the haunting images Tenille captured.
A beautiful yet harrowing coffee table book called ‘Threads of Hope’ was also produced, which will be launched at the exhibition opening and contains the incredible, raw photos that form the charity show.
‘Project Futures I Threads of Hope’ is produced and presented by aMBUSH Gallery, and curated by Project Futures.
The opening night launch event is on Thursday, 22 November from 6-9pm at aMBUSH Gallery, with all photographs available for purchase on the night, and sales of ‘Threads of Hope’ ($65 each, with 50% of all sales going directly to support victims in their recovery and reintegration in Cambodia).
The exhibition will then run from Friday 23 November to Sunday 25 November, from 12-4pm and is free of charge to the public.
