Starting out with a wad of paper and no screws, this model was designed for scrubland. It is the only one of its kind to fly. Thanks to its lower hold, it can be used for parachute jumps.

categoria Master Award: Life in War di Majid Saeedi

Le motivazioni della giuria

«La giuria riconosce all’autore la capacità di aver realizzato un affresco della società afgana nelle sue molteplici sfumature, raccontando la quotidianità di un paese che è riuscito a mantenere viva la propria cultura e un barlume di normalità nonostante un conflitto devastante. I 10 anni di guerra sono raccontati con una profondità di visione e una capacità di empatia che riescono a presentare la complessa realtà afgana nella sua contraddittorietà, che oscilla da una profonda disperazione a un’altrettanto profonda bellezza. Il lavoro supera quindi lo sviluppo classico del racconto reportagistico e diventa la storia per immagini di un’intera civiltà».
