For the last week I’ve been working in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, on a project “Crying Meri”. This is my second visit to PNG and finally after 6 days of working in the capital city I’ve managed my escape to Lae, PNG’s second largest city. Crime situation here is even worst than in Moresby, local men look scary and almost everyone carries big knives.
I’m going to stay couple of days in Lae, and than will continue my trip to Goroka, Kundiawa and Minj, where I will be visiting victims of domestic and street violence.
Found today on Facebook a photo with the pages from the album of the Russian Street Photography Festival 2012 with my work. I like mostly a cigarette butt.
A photo from the story about traditional village of Hanuabada, which is situated at the outskirts of Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Hopefully soon I will have time to check all the pictures from this set and make my story selection.
My story “A Time of Crocodiles | Humans and Nature clash in Mozambique” has received the 3rd place award in Portuguese Premium of Photojournalism “Estação Imagem” in “Environment” category.
