No Place on Earth is the recipient of the 2019 FotoEvidence Book Award with World Press Photo. The Book Award is given each year to a photographer whose work demonstrates courage and commitment in documenting social injustice. Since 2017, photographer Patrick Brown has documented the world's fastest growing refugee crisis and one of the most rapid human outflows in recent history. Risking death at sea or on foot, more than 700,000 Rohingya fled the destruction of their homes and persecution in the northern Rakhine State of Myanmar for neighboring Bangladesh. Arriving at the makeshift camps, most refugees reported harrowingly consistent stories of murder and rape, all of which testify to a deliberate campaign of eradication. “No Place On Earth” provides an intimate portrait of the survivors of the recent persecution and their bleak conditions in overcrowded refugee camps. The hardcover book No Place On Earth contains 98 colour photographs with associated texts by Jason Motlagh an introduction by Matthew Smith director of Fortify Rights and the design by book designer Stuart Smith. The book is available at Amazon: Spain, Germany, France, Italy, UK and USA. and at the FotoEvidence website: No Place on Earth standard edition No Place on Earth signed copy (print not included) No place on Earth limited edition The limited edition is an edition of 100 signed copies of the book that comes with a signed and numbered 8x10 inch print of 11 years old Noor Haba, who carries her family's belongings to shore, after they had sailed for five hours in the fishing boat to arrive early morning on Shamlapur Beach near Cox’s Bazar.
