Work in PNG

I’m still in PNG, working on couple human rights project for the UN and continuing documenting violence against women for my “Crying Meri” project. So far, my personal photo exhibition was opened in Port Moresby two weeks ago and soon it’s traveling to Goroka.

This Friday both of Papua New Guinean newspapers “Post-Courier” and “National” ran one of my photos from the “Crying Meri” series as a part of the national campaign against gender based violence.

I’m very happy that my photographs are helping to stop violence against women in PNG. Big thanks to United Nations Human Rights for great support!
