Current affairs, captured in powerful photographs: the volume ‘Fotos für die Pressefreiheit’ (Photos for Press Freedom) is about to be released for the 25th time – marking a quarter of a century since the German section of Reporters without Borders was established. The book will be introduced on 3 May at the Maxim Gorki Theatre in Berlin, starting at 20.30.
The richly illustrated volume features photographs which document the level of press freedom in different countries around the world. This year’s publication places a strong focus on Afghanistan, China and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Award-winning photographer Andrew Quilty, who has accompanied the harsh realities of life in Afghanistan for a number of years, will be attending the presentation in Berlin.
The 20 photographers represented in this year’s edition also include Instagram icon Dmitri Markow, famous for his remarkable images of rural Russia, as well as Leica photographer Véronique de Viguerie, who documented the devastating humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
De Viguerie’s reportage on the ‘Yellow Vest’ protests in Paris has been featured on the LFI Blog
