Xyza Cruz Bacani’s Modern Slavery exhibit is currently on display at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild. A Public Reception is scheduled for Wednesday, December 14, from 6:00 until 8:00 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Xyza Cruz Bacani was born in the Philippines. As a domestic worker in Hong Kong, Xyza began taking photographs in her spare time. It became her passion both for the therapeutic effect it had on her and because it awakened an innate drive for self expression.
Through social media, Xyza’s work began to catch the eye of the international photography community. In 2015 Xyza was one of seven Magnum Foundation Human Rights Fellows. In the same year, she was named one of the BBC’s 100 Women of the World and she’s currently an ambassador for Fujifilm.
The Modern Slavery exhibit will be on display at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild through January 6, 2017. Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild is located at 1815 Metropolitan Street in nearby Manchester.
