Photojournalism Category | Honourable Mentions 2015

During the selection of the best work for the category Photojournalism of the YToI 2015, we decided to give a special mention to the works presented by:


Amir Behroozi Rad | Iran
Now 27

Amir Behroozi Rad's work proposes a touching story through vibrant black and white and angle shots, highlighting the desperation in faces and the interaction between the bodies. In fact Now 27 documents the arrival in the family of the corpse of an Iranian soldier who became a martyr during the war between Iran and Iraq in the Eighties (1980 - 1988). It took 27 years before the body could be identified and given back to the family to be buried. A dramatic story, that unfortunately involves lots of families whose sons have left to fight in the war and never came back, dead or alive. Amir Behroozi Rad comments: «While the sun rises after a dark night full of grief, their son has finally come back after 27 years, but it is only half of him as his soul was left on the fighting ground almost as if he knew that behind every dawn there is always a new war waiting. While I was witnessing the grief on those faces through my lens, I asked myself who would have captured the same grief and pain on those faces in the next 27 years».

Alfredo Bosco | Italy
Davai Donbass

Alfredo Bosco proposes a reportage centred on a theme that recently has been focus of numerous works, the Ukrainian war. Nevertheless, what the young Italian photo reporter has documented is not the development of the conflict in general, but what has been happening in the last year in some of the zones controlled by separatists. Alfredo Bosco explains: «The project has been developed in two different moments. The first part was developed from Autumn 2014, when the separatists took control of the Donetsk airport. The second part instead, was realised in the winter of 2015, during the still standing ceasefire imposed following the Debaltseve occupation, a crucial strategic place in the area. The aim of the reportage is to illustrate the situation as it is in the occupied territory beyond the last check point controlled by Ukraine: volunteer separatists that actively defend what is left of a destroyed area, where a fragile truce is not sustainable anymore».

Anna Pantelia | Greece
The European Dream

The reportage presented by Anna Pantelia talks about migration, xenophobia and racism. With The European Dream the young Greek photographer presents one of the less evident relapses of current political and economic crisis of her Country: the violence towards the migrants that arrive in Greece hoping to continue their journey towards other European Countries. This violence is out of control and uses the lack of institutions of a Country on its knees from a migratory flux that has never been seen before. The author explains: «Attacks against immigrants happen on a daily basis and are sometimes fatal. Immigrants are everywhere in Athens. The newly arrived Syrians are mainly living in Neos Kosmos. They live in the same buildings where the Greek refugees where living after the Greco-Turkish War in 1922, which shaped the borders of the Hellenic State (Greece was in fact obliged to give Turkey some of its territories - editor's note). The doors and windows of these buildings have been broken or burned during the attacks carried out by the sustainers of the Golden Dawn political party. [ ... ] Immigrants arriving here have different stories, different pasts and maybe different futures, but they have a common objective: to hide on a boat and go to Italy in order to fulfill the so called European dream».
