Yesterday’s News brings together the work of three photographers, documenting three major disasters, across thirty years: Chernobyl, Bosnia and Nepal. Despite detailing three very different tragedies, all the work shares an interest in examining how people live in the wake of catastrophe.
This exhibition draws together the work of three emerging photographers: Karen Block, Sophie Fauchier and Chris Gravett – all recent University of Westminster graduates.

The photographers present their work in collaboration with set designers students from Central St Martins and sound artist Evan Lopez de Bergara, currently doing a Master’s Degree at University of Westminster. Together they have devised a reconstruction of the exhibition space that creates an immersive journey for the viewer.
