TOP PHOTOJOURNALISM AGENCIES AGREE CULTURAL PARTNERSHIP
The Swedish photojournalism agency Kontinent, and its Dutch counterpart, NOOR, have agreed a partnership focused on building the cultural and educational elements of their organisations: (including, but are not limited to) exhibitions, workshops and seminars.
For both Kontinent, Sweden’s foremost photojournalism agency, and NOOR one of the world’s most established international agencies, it is an agreement that will enable them to reach a wider public audience.
"NOOR embody ideals very close to our own. We wish to bring important stories to a larger audience and inspire positive change. This partnership will help us both at a time when honest photojournalism is needed more than ever. We will be able, not only to reach more people, but also to work on important new projects." - says Magnus Laupa, Kontinent’s founder and CEO.
Partnership conversations began last year as photojournalists from around the world gathered in the French town of Perpignan for the annual photojournalism festival Visa pour L'image.
"Kontinent is an independent photo agency, run by its photographers, standing by its founding principle of giving voice to the voiceless. We are happy to share the same values. NOOR started 10 years ago because together NOOR photographers were able to “make changes” through photography, making stories that would impact humanity. NOOR is a family, a place where photographers can unite their individual visions and reflections and have full control of their professional lives and projects" - Clément Saccomani, Managing Director NOOR.
Now, having agreed their partnership, both agencies look forward to working alongside each other during what is a sensitive yet never more vital time for photojournalism and freedom of press.
