“Despite the terrible years of conflict that have marked the population, life in the camp is improving thanks to small moments of joy. Young people improvise dances, organize karaoke, girls go to mass singing and dancing, others go to the hairdresser. They try to hold on to their still too rare moments of respite. So yes, children and young people continue to smile but they all carry heavy traumas.” - @emin_ozmen

We speak to @emin_ozmen about the adversity of life in a Protection of Civilians camp in South Sudan, as well as the hopes and resilience of the people living there. Link in bio.

The civil war in South Sudan, which entered its sixth year this winter, was ended officially in a peace agreement in September, 2018. In spite of this, civilians continue to face violence from armed groups, and displaced populations are living with urgent humanitarian needs in camps such as the Bentiu Protection of Civilians (POC) site.

Today on Magnum: @emin_ozmen reflects on his experiences working in South Sudan in late 2018, documenting the continuing crisis which is coming to the fore in Bentiu and its surrounding villages. Link in bio.

Spaces are limited for Antoine d'Agata's upcoming workshop at @miamiphotofest this February, 22 - 26.
.
More than learning new technical skills, this course focuses on developing each student’s own unique photographic vision. With the guidance of d’Agata, you will be encouraged to deeply immerse yourself in new concepts of photography and develop your voice as a storyteller, while learning to edit, sequence and create unique and innovative images. You will photograph intensively throughout the workshop with the objective to extend the limits of your approach.

“If you want to give a feeling and impression, things have to work together within the four walls” - @richardkalvar
