Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up – 19 June 2020

This week on Photojournalism Now: Friday Round up – the launch of a new video series, Photojournalism Now: In Conversation. The first video interview features award-winning visual journalist and human rights activist Robin Hammond in conversation with Alison Stieven-Taylor. Check it out on YouTube.

Robin shares photographs from his Carmignac Photojournalism Award project in Zimbabwe which is part of this year’s Carmignac anniversary exhibition Ten Years of Reportage. We also talk about his ongoing project on mental health and specifically those suffering from dementia in Japan. Plus the important work that his non-profit Witness Change is doing to help marginalised groups to tell their own stories.

82 year-old Akiko Furuta, who has dementia, was a rice farmer before she retired. Akiko says, when asked about dementia that: “dementia is something where you forget things. But I don’t have dementia. I don’t forget things.”
