Further information:
"This work is in response to 'The Power of Hope' by Kon Karapanagiotidis. Aside from being a memoir 'The Power of Hope' is also a call to action. Action can take many forms but the beginnings of all action lie within us and the connection to our humanity to the shared humanity of all people. Karapanagiotidis calls us to be more compassionate.
Recently my attention was drawn back to The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This document reads as radical in this current era of rejection of the Other, fear of the Other. I have paired a selection of articles from the Declaration with pertinent quotes from Karapanagiotidis’ writing and illustrated the book with photos of people, just random people. They could be you or me. The photos were taken on Central Station in Sydney. I chose this location because of the randomness of those passing through and because the movement of people has become such a contentious issue." Monica Oppen
