Enthusiasts of documentary photography will surely enjoy it! 10 years is a long time, and NOOR photographers used it to work in difficult conditions in order to turn the attention of the whole world to the stories that happen every day, but sometimes we fail to notice them. We are excited to present a broad exhibition of photographs by the 13 members of the NOOR photo agency.

NOOR is a collective uniting a select group of highly accomplished photojournalists documenting, investigating and witnessing our world. Since 2007 NOOR has been dedicated to covering the struggles for human rights and social justice around the world.

From underreported conflicts, often making lengthy inquiries into the lives of the women and children, to climate change and rising sea levels, via racial discrimination in the USA and modern day slavery, NOOR – an Arabic word meaning light – has shone a light on the world’s inequalities, seizing the power of photography for social awareness, resistance and change.

NOOR by NOOR is a unique curation by NOOR photographers and a fascinating visual journey into NOOR archives with more than 130 pictures shot during the last decade around the world. Exploring ten years of NOOR, each NOOR photographer has digged into the archive of another NOOR photographer and selected a body of work that they feel best reflects what binds NOOR as a group: a confrontation to the dominant narrative to inspire empathy and action through visual storytelling with integrity and passion.
