Tim Hetherington Grant
Stephen Ferry awarded first Tim Hetherington Grant
Stephen Ferry, Emergency Fund 2012 photographer, was awarded the first Tim Hetherington Grant for “Violentology: A Manual of the Colombian Conflict.” The €20,000 grant was chosen from 222 other applicants from among 56 countries.
The judges commented:
“As Tim Hetherington immersed himself in West Africa, spending many years working and living in Liberia, so Stephen Ferry has dedicated himself to covering conflict in Colombia. Ferry is not only committed to creating an important historical record, he is also generating innovative approaches for disseminating that record within the community he documents, as well as to a worldwide audience.”
A big congratulations from the Magnum Foundation team! For more information on Ferry’s Violentology project, please view his blog: http://violentology.com/blog/?page_id=2
The grant was established to commemorate the legacy of photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington, who was killed in Libya earlier this year.
