Recipient of the Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund
Delighted to announce that I'm a recipient of the Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund, which will allow me to continue my long-term project The United Soya Republic, focusing on the realities of agribusiness expansion in Argentina.
The Emergency Fund, which was set up in response to the shrinking opportunities for storytelling within established media, has to date supported 78 photographers. This year's 18 grantees were selected from more than 140 photographers nominated anonymously by 26 international photo editors, publishers, curators and educators.
A massive thank you to the person who nominated me, and congratulations to the other winners whose work can be seen on TIME LightBox here.
“Through production grants, mentorship, and project development assistance, the Magnum Foundation Fund fosters diversity and creativity in documentary photography and related practices. In collaboration with the Prince Claus Fund, the Magnum Foundation Fund supports both emerging and experienced practitioners. Each year, a changing international committee of nominators invites photographers to submit proposals for consideration, which are then selected by an independent jury. Selected projects are those that explore new models of storytelling, demonstrate a commitment to social issues, and/or are grounded in the communities they represent.”
