Public open air photo exhibition

BGW photo exhibition “People – Work – Handicap” in Dessau

Hamburg/Dessau – Photographic insights into the lives of people with disabilities show how multi-layered inclusion is.
From April 7 to 26, excellent photographic works on the topic will be on display at the marketplace in Dessau.

The award-winning results of the photo competition “Mensch – Arbeit – Handicap” (People – Work – Handicap), which was organized by the Berufsgenossenschaft für Gesundheitsdienst und Wohlfahrtspflege (BGW), focus on the everyday (working) life of people with disabilities. The photo competition took place in the middle of the pandemic under special conditions. The diversity and expressiveness of the winning images and the closeness they convey to the people photographed are all the more impressive.

The BGW provides further information on the results of its photo competition “Man – Work – Handicap” at, where it also provides up-to-date information on further exhibition dates and locations.
