People on the Move

People have been on the move since time immemorial. Today, the number of international migrants worldwide stands at 258 million, about 3.4 per cent of the world’s population. While we use statistics to speak about people on the move, we must remember that each number represents a human being, someone just like each of us. The images in this exhibit capture moments in time – over the last seven decades – of the millions that have, for one reason or another, become people on the move.

This exhibit is organized by the UN Department of Public Information with the support of the International Photographic Council and Lifetouch.

On display until 14 November 2018
