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.

Tanya Habjouqa will take your mental process and approach to documentary work into uncharted territories of personal narrative liberation. In other words, you are choosing the red pill.
Gulf Photo Plus has also graciously offering a scholarship to emerging photographers and artists from the MENA, SouthEast Asia and Africa region for a space in Tanya Habjouqa's documentary photography workshop at GPP Photo Week 2019.

The idea behind this scholarship is to provide the education, mentorship and an opportunity to connect with like minded photographers and artists to young, emerging photographers in the regions that have limited opportunities for a workshop like this.
Preference is given to applicants who have a body of work in progress or an idea for a strong and compelling project related to the social issues of our region.
The deadline for the application is Jan 8, 2019. Tanya along with GPP will review the applicants' submissions.

NOOR is excited to share the recently launched Reconstruction of Identities #RIO Project, a project aiming to promote and protect the richness of both national and European cultural heritage. The RIO Project will breathe life into small communities by stimulating cultural activities as an alternative communication method between locals and newcomers.
To enhance communication between foreigners and locals within such communities, RIO project aims to organise a wide-ranging programme of talks, conferences, guided tours, and book-signings; it promotes the opening of artists’ residencies, the organisation and circulation of exhibitions, and the lending of artworks to other museums or institutions; it aims at providing young and amateur photographers with educational resources, activities and workshops.

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
