@worldpressphoto invited me to give a lecture to coincide with the screening of work from female photographers made in the WPP masterclasses, including powerful storytelling by my sisters @lynseyaddario @renaeffendiphoto @newshatavakolian and many others, presented by Jenny Smets, at the @organvida_festival in Zagreb, who dedicated their entire 2018 program to women’s perspectives. THE ENTIRE PROGRAM!
I shared my work on the war in Ukraine, my experiences as a young woman photographer at the beginning of my career and some ideas about gender and the failings of the photojournalism industry in an open, transparent conversation, asking difficult questions and sharing ideas, as part of the official programming.
A wonderful and inspiring few days with beautiful people, including @raphaelarosella and little Alessio, @nina_berman @julia_fullertonbatten and other powerful and strong women 💕

The young couple will receive a wedding payment of approximately €575 (300,00 ad) as part of the de facto government's “Birth Encouragement Program”. Khtsaberd village, Hadrut Region, Nagorno Karabakh, July 2011. I’ve been nominated for the Royal Photographic Society @rps100heroines and am taking over their Instagram feed for a few days where I’ll be sharing work from the last 15 years.

Here, Gashaw Jaffar, a Peshmerga soldier, guards a checkpoint at the Farmanday Peshmerga base outside Sulaimaniyah, Kurdistan, Iraq. September 2003.
I made this image as part of my final degree project for a BA in Documentary Photography at the University of Wales, Newport. I was 22 years old and it was my first time photographing abroad- it was also the first photograph I was proud I made. The image that kickstarted my career when it won the Guardian photography prize and David Bailey, who was a judge, likened it to the iconic image of Che Guevara by Alberto Korda. They also gave me £5000 to go back to Kurdistan to make more work.

Photojournalism wants its #metoo moment to go away. Kainaz Amaria writing for VOX today. Beyond our female colleagues in photojournalism, do we have a responsibility to also protect media support staff and the people we photograph from sexual harassment? I’m in Perpignan incase anyone wants to talk in person on some of these issues!
