NOOR showcases 2018 Nikon-NOOR Academy Second Session Students' Projects

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.

Pakhuis de Zwijger, Piet Heinkade 179, Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Six photographers. Six countries. Six stories. One continent. 


NOOR on Africa, literally translated to “light on Africa”, is a new visual dialogue and approach on Africa, a collective lens on the continent, questioning the way stories are made and told.


NOOR Foundation and Nikon have joined forces to portrait the continent through stories of political and social expression, captured in Tunisia, South Sudan, Ghana, Mozambique, Burkina Faso and Botswana.


NOOR photographers Pep Bonet, Benedicte Kurzen, Stanley Greene, Yuri Kozyrev, Kadir van Lohuizen & Asim Rafiqui will each show their projects and talk about the different approaches they have chosen to picture the continent.


Seats are limited. Register now:
