‘My Friend, My Friend’
March 1st - April 27th
Pllek, Amsterdam - The Netherlands
This exciting and haunting series of images were taken at refugee camps that Marcus visited while travelling from Athens to Idomeni between April and June 2016. Each day he would print his photographs and give them to the people he photographed as a token of his thanks and friendship.
‘Valance’s signature hallmark is the exceptional levels of empathy he manages to generate with his subjects. This delivers images that in a most extraordinary and memorable way, captures the true nature of the human spirit in the face of adversity.’
20% of all profits from the Pllek exhibition will be going to Salam LADC - an internationally run charity for refugees based in the Lebanon where Marcus worked for a month in October 2016.
