Reposted from Time LightBox:

But unlike other cities, where the dead are forgotten in far away cemeteries, the martyrs of Change Square are at the center of attention. Photographs of those killed in the clashes flutter from the tent ropes that crisscross the city’s walkways. Portraits are plastered on the walls of the mosque.  Some protesters even wear bandanas printed with pictures of the dead wrapped around their forehead. And in the center of the square is a vast billboard where the protest’s grim toll is laid out in a mosaic of death intermingled with pride.  “We all want to be martyrs,” one young protestor told me. “To have change, we need to sacrifice, and sometimes that means our lives.” His friend agreed. “The only way we will get international attention for our cause is if there is blood on the streets.”

Yuri Kozyrev, EF 2011 photographer, featured in British Journal of Photography article.
Yuri Kozyrev documented four revolutions (Yemen, Bahrain, Egypt, and Libya) over a period of nine months. Kozyrev’s work from the last year is largely acknowledged to be one of the most comprehensive coverage of the Arab world during this period of turmoil, culminating in the Visa D’or News Award. He spoke with Olivier Laurent about the sacrifices of in-depth journalism and his plans to move to Cairo.

"I missed a lot, there’s no question about that. I wish I could have  stayed longer in all these places. If you remember, when I was working  in Iraq I was staying on the ground; I was looking for more in-depth  stories. But right now, I think that’s the only way we can cover it." 

The Magnum Foundation supported the Libya leg of Kozyrev’s journey, which Kozyrev acknowledged in the interview “only happened thanks to the support of the Magnum Foundation and Time.”

TIME LightBox, Dispatched from Yemen
Photo essay by Yuri Kozyrev
Yuri Kozyrev spent three weeks in Yemen documenting violent and anti-government protests.  Yemen has been under authoritarian rule for nearly three decades, and is demographically one of the poorest populations in the Arabian Peninsula, with a 40 percent unemployment rate.  This year, over 350 people died in the protests.  His work was published in Time Magazine’s LightBox.  

Kozyrev’s photos shine a light on a country convulsed by violence, steeped in danger, seeking a way out.
