The New York Times Hard Truths

The New York Times Hard Truths Exhibition comes to Scotland in collaboration with Beyond Borders.

An arresting exhibition of news photography from the world’s leading photojournalists has arrived in Edinburgh as part of a world-first extended exhibition and event series between The New York Times and Beyond Borders.

Hard Truths: An Exhibition of Prize-Winning Photography from The New York Times is a series of events curated by Beyond Borders at the Edinburgh Festival, Edinburgh International Book Festival and Beyond Borders International Festival. Following these events, the exhibition will then transfer to Summerhall, Edinburgh, in September, before going on to the London School of Economics.

The collection is the first of its kind from The New York Times, scaling a selection of piercing and sometimes harrowing images from the world of flat newsprint to a full series of curated events and public installations in order to help audiences fully grapple with landmark political issues and the turmoil of the twenty-first century.
