Listen now to Kadir van Lohuizen speaking on the first episode of the BBC World Service 3 part podcast series "The History of Wastefulness" that investigates how poor waste management across the world has led to a garbage emergency.
NOOR is proud to share the projects of 2018 Nikon-NOOR Academy Second Session students.
NOOR visual-storytellers Benedicte Kurzen, Sanne De Wilde, Francesco Zizola, Sebastian Liste, Jon Lowenstein, Tanya Habjouqa, Kadir van Lohuizen and Leonard Pongo led 49 students in the masterclasses held in Italy, Hungary and Switzerland. During four intensive days of the Nikon-NOOR Academy, each group reviewed and shared their portfolios, listened to presentations by the photographers, held in-depth discussions on practical and creative issues, and edited their visual stories.
The masterclasses have been made possible thanks to the generous support of Nikon Europe.

Dedicated to the Arctic and chaired by Jean Jouzel, and under the patronage of Minister Ségolène Royal, French Ambassador for the Arctic and Antarctic Poles, the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award was awarded to Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir Van Lohuizen (NOOR). Their investigative photoreportage «Arctic: New Frontier» is a pioneering double expedition which explores the effects of climate change on the entire Arctic territory. They want to experience the dramatic transformation of natural landscapes and the demographics in the Arctic, and the impact of these changes on the lives of the region’s inhabitants.
With amongst others
- Kadir Van Lohuizen | Photographer and journalist
- Bernice Notenboom | Pole traveler
- Othniel Art Oomittuk Jr | Inupiaq artist
"The photos of Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen are superb. Through them, from Siberia, Svalbard and Greenland to Canada and Alaska, we discover the Arctic of today, with its landscapes and wildlife that are drawing a growing number of tourists, as well as its populations who are exposed to extreme climates and who mine resources such as nickel and, increasingly, gas, oil and coal. Protecting the environment does not appear central to their activity, to put it mildly." —Jean Jouzel, climatologist, winner of the 2012 Vetlesen Award and co-winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Award as Director of the IPCC
The moderator of this event is Saccomani Clément.

2018 marks 70 years since the expulsion and displacement of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes, villages and cities during the one-year conflict that created Israel in 1948. Since then, the Nakba (catastrophe), as it is known in Arabic to Palestinians, has been engraved in Palestinian collective consciousness as a story of relentless dispossession.
We are proud to share this new digital plateform where NOOR's Tanya Habjouqa collaborated together Amnesty International in producing this immersive photo-story on 70 years of Palestinian displacement.

Keystone-SDA, NOOR Foundation and Nikon Europe invite to join for an evening with NOOR’s award-winning photographers Tanya Habjouqa (JO/US), Jon Lowenstein (US), Léonard Pongo (BE).
« Intimacy of place and the tools of telling »
NOOR photographers will share key insights used to develop personal projects and their unique paths through photography. They will share previously unseen work and explore how to move beyond a linear narrative. Join us for an evening conversation to transcend what has been strictly documentary into a new terrain of documentary photography by incorporating the humane, personal, and collaborative into the unexpected.
The conversation will be hosted in English by Agata Bar, Editorial Director at NOOR Images. Afterwards there will be the opportunity for personal conversations at the Daizy Bar.
Public event – Please register your participation by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The three NOOR photographers will be in Zurich from 3 to 6 December, 2018 on occasion of an international Masterclass program, run by Keystone-SDA’s partner agency NOOR and graciously supported by Nikon Europe. Read more about the 2018 Nikon-NOOR Academy.

On America's most wasteful weekend, #BlackFriday, we look back at the impact of waste to our planet with Kadir van Lohuizen's project Wasteland in the Washington Post. The world generates at least 3.5 million tons of solid waste a day, 10 times the amount a century ago, according to World Bank researchers. On average, Americans throw away their own body weight in trash every month.
