About Exodus
Bangladeshi migrant labourers who have fled the unrest in Libya walking along a road from the border post at Ras Ajdir towards a refugee camp set up by UNHCR near the town of Ben Gardane in Tunisia.

Tens of thousands of people have fled the unrest in Libya which started on 17 February 2011 as a popular uprising against the 41 year rule of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. 

About Chris de Bode
Chris is a documentary and portrait photographer / filmdirector. He became interested in photography during his previous career as a professional climbing instructor. Following a trip to Palestine he decided to focus his work on humanitarian issues. He travelled to more than 70 countries collecting stories.

Chris always tries to find different angles to visualize a story. Examples of this approach are his story on cycling races and the "No Way Home" project among many others. He received recognition from Stephen Mayes calling the Exodus from Libya collage in an Aperture publication "...remarkably innovative seen in a print context..."

Currently he is capturing the dreams of children worldwide and focuses on Syrian Refugee issues. One latest project is a documentary movie Chris directed on children collecting scrap in Jordan. All of this commissioned by Save the Children NL.

Chris is not only working abroad and is, when at home, available for assignments in The Netherlands.

Chris is commissioned by several NGO's like Save the Children, Aids Fonds/Stop Aids Now, MSF, Greenpeace, VSO, CARE, Oxfam and Cordaid. Also several UN branches like UNFPA, UNHCR and WHO worked with him. He has broad experience in mentoring workshops in several countries educating photographers on all levels focusing on story telling in pictures.
