Tanya Habjouqa teaching at Gulf Photo Plus Week 2019

"You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes." - The Matrix

Tanya Habjouqa will teaching at Gulf Photo Plus Week 2019 from February 4th to 9th, a workshop designed to clear any creative blocks and help you dive headfirst into your project.

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.

Find the link to the scholarship here: https://bit.ly/2CvbBAf

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.

Photojournalist Kadir van Lohuizen & Pole traveler Bernice Notenboom talk about the effects of the melting ice-caps in the Arctic

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.

SEVENTY YEARS OF SUFFOCATION - Tanya Habjouqa with Amnesty International

Photo by Tanya Habjouqa/ NOOR

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.
