Images of Yemen – Strengthening local photojournalism in Yemen

Skilled photojournalists from non-western countries have a hard time bringing their work to an international stage. Often they are reduced to being fixers and guides for western journalists. Because of this, many relevant stories are simply lost in translation. We want to do something about this. We will organise a workshop with representatives of the Yemeni photojournalist collective Yemen Eyes Club. The aim is to discuss how we can bring Yemeni photojournalist work, especially by female photojournalists, to an international stage.
