Human trafficking and modern slavery affect an estimated 40 million people worldwide.

Sara Shamma: Modern Slavery  draws attention to this pressing global issue through a new series of large-scale portraits by London-based Syrian artist Sara Shamma.

The exhibition is the result of a research-based residency as part of the King’s Artists programme at King’s College London. Based within the department of Health Service and Population Research Department in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), the artist worked closely with Dr Siân Oram and in partnership with the Helen Bamber Foundation. Sara Shamma: Modern Slavery  is curated by Kathleen Soriano.
