"If you focus only on retribution, you extinguish the very spirit and memory of your child"
Francis Climbie, father of Victoria
A powerful photographic exhibition exploring the idea of forgiveness in the face of atrocity opens at four sites in the seacoast beginning April 1st.
THE F WORD: images of forgiveness is the brainchild of journalist Marina Cantacuzino and photographer Brian Moody who in January 2004, tired of a climate where revenge and retaliation dominated the headlines, resolved to present the public with an alternative view.
Travelling to places including the United States, South Africa, Northern Ireland, Romania, Rwanda, Israel and Palestine, as well as the UK, they collected the stories of 24 people whose lives had been shattered by violence, tragedy and injustice – and who had chosen to take the challenging and often painful journey towards forgiveness.
