My portrait of the young sisters Ayse and Abigail, taken in the Liberia Camp in Ghana in 2017, was selected for the Life Framer Award by Alison Morley, photo editor, lecturer and writer, and the Chair of the Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Program at the world-renowned International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York.
“I was immediately drawn to these two flash-bulb lit girls and their appropriation of male street culture – the chains, the stony expressions, the crotch-grab, the bravado. The cliché flipped on its head. It shows them to be multi-faceted women – street-wise and complex.” – Life Framer
My work was selected for the Lens Culture Emerging Talent Award 2017!
I am very happy about this great news! Within the PHM 2017 Women Photographers Grant, my project was selected for the solo show at the Organ Vida Festival in Zagreb in September 2018! I am looking forward to present my work in full detail and to share with you this moment!
What an honor to be one of the Nominee of the Photography Grant 2017!
