Anush Babajanyan has been awarded the Canon Female Photojournalist Award. For the nineteenth year in a row, Canon and Visa pour l’Image bestowed the award to an outstanding female photographer in recognition of her contribution to photojournalism.
The €8,000 grant, which will be awarded on September 7 in Perpignan, will enable Anush to fund her project on large families in Nagorno-Karabakh. The work will be exhibited at the 2020 edition of Visa pour l’Image.
Seven VII photographers are talking about inspiration in this special edition of #7withVII. We ask one question and get 7 answers. We asked, “Who/what inspires you to create and why.” Here’s what Anush Babajanyan, Linda Bournane Engelberth, Ed Kashi, Esther Ruth Mbabazi, Daniel Schwartz, Nichole Sobecki, and John Stanmeyer had to say.
This week’s newsletter takes a look at VII at Photoville, including “Her Take: (Re)Thinking Masculinity” by the Seven of VII, a walking tour with Maggie Steber and Sara Terry, and Esther Ruth Mbabazi’s “EmergiCube.”
