Patrick Brown wins the 2019 FotoEvidence Book Award with World Press Photo
 

Australian photographer Patrick Brown won the 2019 FotoEvidence Book Award with World Press Photo for his project “No Place on Earth,” documenting the world's fastest growing refugee crisis and one of the most rapid human exodus 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. Arriving in Bangladesh 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 Rohingya survivors  and their bleak conditions in overcrowded refugee camps.

Finalists: 

Mikael Owunna for “Limitless Africans. The work is a collaborative response between the photographer and his community, to re-define what it means to be an immigrant, African and queer in North America and Europe at this time.
Fausto Podavini  for “OMO Change.”  The work aims to be a meditation on how large-scale investments can put at risk a delicate balance between humans and their environment that has persisted for hundreds of years. 

Brown’ work will be published in a hardbound FotoEvidence book to be released this spring.  Brown, Owunna and Podavini will be exhibited at the World Press Photo exhibit in Amsterdam in April and at the FotoEvidence Book Award Exhibit in New York at the Bronx Documentary Center, opening May 30th 2019.

FotoEvidence Women is a new chapter of FotoEvidence Press, a space for free expression, devoted to engaged women photographers who want to tell their stories in the form of a photo book. Through their lenses women can shape the world differently and we want to give them this chance.

At this moment, women around the world are seeking equal rights and equal opportunity.  The FotoEvidence W Award for Personal Story will suppot this movement. It will be granted by a selection committee to one woman  whose work merits a book. The hardbound book will be published by FotoEvidence. Two other photographers will receive honorable mentions. Through their lenses women can shape the world differently and we want to give them this chance.
