We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2017 Inge Morath Award, Johanna-Maria Fritz (@johannamariafritz). Her project, "Like a bird," explores the role of women in circus life in #Afghanistan, #Iran, and #Palestine. She says this work opens viewers to "different worlds: the one of the circus as well as the society surrounding it, and how the social fabric of the circus influences the outside and in turn is influenced itself."
The Inge Morath Award is a $5,000 production grant given each year to a woman photographer under the age of 30 to support the completion of a long-term documentary project.
