Sharjah24: Giles Clarke, a photojournalist, and Randy Olson, a photographer in the social-documentary tradition, point the public attention to the world’s societal matters in their photographs at Xposure.
Giles Clarke is a photojournalist focusing on capturing the human face of current and post-conflict issues throughout the world.

Clarke shares a series of pictures of people who live in dumpsters in Haiti, at Xposure. These people create their own work by recycling metal and plastic, making 12 - 15 dollars a day. 

In his interview with “Sharjah 24”, He stated that the dumpster, an aftermath of the 2012 earthquake, became their home and an opportunity for those who are not lucky enough to find work.

Randy Olson is a photographer in the social-documentary tradition. He has primarily photographed projects for the National Geographic Society.

As part of Xposure, Randy discussed his work regarding population issues and resource attraction. He believes that because of having many resources, hundreds of millions of cars pop up all of a sudden happen in about 40 years.

Olson stated, in statements to “Sharjah24”,It requires petrol, steel, and other types of resources for these things to burgeon, and that’s what triggered him to create the photographs that are displayed at Xposure, an attempt to find a link between population matters and resource attraction.
