Fotojurnalista independentă Kiana Hayeri, care în prezent lucrează în Kabul, Afganistan, este câștigătoarea Marelui Premiu IAFOR Documentary Photography Award 2017, ca o recunoaștere a muncii sale remarcabile.
Kiana Hayeri primește acest IAFOR Documentary Photography Award, bine meritat, pentru proiectul său ”Single Mothers of Afghanistan”, care se concentrează pe mamele singure din Afganistan, povestite prin fotografii, o poveste umană reprezentând o altă parte a vieții într-o țară sfâșiată de război.
The IAFOR Documentary Photography Award is now inviting submissions on the theme: “History, Story, Narrative”. Historians are far from the only interested party in writing history. In a sense it is an interest we all share – whether we are talking politics, region, family birthright, or even personal experience. We are spectators to the process of history while being intimately situated within its impact and formations.
The IAFOR Documentary Photography Award is an international photography award which seeks to promote and assist in the professional development of emerging of young documentary photographers and photojournalists.
Documentary photographers from around the world are invited to submit documentary photography projects along with an 15-image supporting portfolio on topics of human suffering and unrest, forgotten communities, exploited lands and people, on communities ravaged by war, poverty, famine, disease, and the exploitation of global resources.
