Mexico, Tapanatepec, October 2018 By Pieter Ten Hoopen / Agence VU @pietertenhoopen World Press Photo Story of the Year – “The new award for the World Press Photo Story of the Year honors the photographer whose visual creativity and skills produced a story with excellent editing and sequencing that captures or represents an event or issue of great journalistic importance in 2018.” / From the series “The Migrant Caravan” Families bathe, wash clothes and relax beside the Rio Novillero, when a migrant caravan takes a rest day near Tapanatepec. During October and November, thousands of Central American migrants joined a caravan heading to the United States border. The caravan, assembled through a grassroots social media campaign, left San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on 12 October, and as word spread drew people from Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala. They were a mix of those facing political repression and violence, and those fleeing harsh economic conditions in the hope of a better life. Traveling in a caravan offered a degree of safety on a route where migrants have previously disappeared or been kidnapped, and was an alternative to paying high rates to people smugglers. Migrant caravans travel to the US border at different times each year, but this was the largest in recent memory with as many as 7,000 travelers, including at least 2,300 children, according to UN agencies. Conditions along the way were grueling, with people walking around 30 km a day, often in temperatures above 30°C. The caravan usually set off at around 4am each day to avoid the heat. Like others, the caravan drew condemnation from US president Donald Trump, who made it a focal point of rallies and used it to reiterate his call for tough immigration policies and the building of a border wall. #agencevu #vu_photo #vu_archive #personalproject #documentary #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #mexico #WPPh2019 #worldpressphoto #pietertenhoopen

I am honored to receive this first prize of the Environment Category story at the @worldpressphoto #wpph2019 Africa, Chad, Bol. 16/10/2018 Bol hospital, the only one in the whole of the Lake Chad region. The most common diseases are malnutrition, malaria and AIDS. In recent years, the Lake Chad region has become the setting of the world’s most complex humanitarian disaster, devastated by converging scourges of climate change, violent extremism, food insecurity, population explosion, disease, poverty, weak statehood, and corruption. This series nominated at the World Press Photo describe the on going crisis of the lake chad basin, that has produced almost 2 million refugees. Climate change in Chad has led to the desertification of the lake. It has created internal refugees who become easy prey for the terrorists who travel down from Nigeria on small boats, across the lake, to recruit, kidnap and attack the civilian population. Basically the Lake Chad crisis condenses the three most significant problems of our time into one major crisis: desertification, terrorism, and a totalitarian government that makes it difficult to bring in aid. • • • • • #YourShotPhotographer #friendsinperson #everydayeverywhere #everydayafrica #myfeatureshoot #liveforthestory #ReportageSpotlight #photooftheday #all_shots #exposure #composition #capture #moment #Dysturb #photojournalism @contrasto_photographers

I don’t usually post color images. But today is a special day. My work in Yemen has been nominated for the World Press Photo Story of the Year. I hope this award will give visibility to a story that really matters. Unfortunately the crisis in Yemen is not over. I want to thank again @olivierclaurent and @maryannegolon for their amazing work. Also thanks to Giulia Tornari and all the amazing staff at @contrasto_photographers for their help and support. This image was taken in a small clinic in Aslam, in north-west Yemen. @worldpressphoto @washpostphoto #Yemen #blackandwhitephotography #photojounalism #photojournalist #photographer #documentaryphotography #documentary #reportage #photostory #onassignment

I had the pleasure of working on #Falcons for the October 2018 issue of the National Geographic Magazine. In #Mongolia I worked with the wonderful Batbayar Bold, a member of the Mongolian Wildlife Science and Conservation Center. The key issue we focused on was the danger posed by electric pylons and how they kill millions of raptors every year. ⠀ In numerous studies of mitigation measures, the use of perch deflector spikes on the cross arms of line poles reduced #electrocution rates when 3 or 4 spikes were deployed. Perch deflectors work by reducing the opportunity for birds to perch adjacent to pin insulators rather than by reducing the frequency of #birds perching on the cross arm. At anchor poles, a simple reconfiguration of jump wires at two phases so that they passed under the cross arm rather than over, significantly reduces electrocution rates. These mitigation measures potentially represent an inexpensive method to reduce the frequency of #raptor electrocution in regions where cost is a key factor for power line managers in determining whether or not any form of mitigation is used. The Mongolians made a case study of one 100-kilometer section of powerlines on the steppe for a 1-year period, in that time, over 320 rare #Saker Falcons were found electrocuted from that small sample area alone. Thousands of other birds were also killed. It wasn’t hard to see how the millions and millions of miles of powerlines around the world devastate the global #bird population. On a more positive note, I also got to see a project where the Mongolians have erected thousands of artificial nesting sites on the barren Steppe, as well as spend time with Boldbaatar Batjargal, a Mongolian master #falconer, who is as close to these birds as anyone on the planet. I watched him imprint himself on a Saker falcon mother, so he could disentangle one of her chicks from plastic in the nest which was deforming the chick’s foot and threatening its future. What followed from the mother bird truly looked like gratitude. @natgeo #falconry #conservation #endangeredspecies⠀

Honoured that this image taken a few weeks ago in Dakar has been selected for a 2019 World Press Photo Award (Portraits category) mainly because it challenges many of the depictions we so often see from Africa. During 15 years spent living and working across the continent, I often produced the kinds of images that define Western coverage here–explicit, disturbing photographs of violence and suffering. I’ve always tried to offer a nuanced, broader view, but it is clear that coverage must be more rounded with African voices shaping the narrative. Foreign reporting on unfolding events—however grim and ugly the reality—is essential, but we must remain conscious of how outdated and damaging it is to perpetuate the enduring legacy of the colonial, or anthropological gaze. Being white, male, and privileged brings with it certain perspectives and biases that may not be possible to fully escape. We can, however, acknowledge them and work to minimize their influence. Yes, I pressed the shutter to capture this image, but much of the creativity behind it lies with Adama (Paris) Ndiaye @adamaparis, the Senegalese designer who has pushed the Dakar fashion scene onto the global stage, West Africa’s everyday sense of glamour and style embodied by the Senegalese, as well as generosity of the residents of Dakar's Medina neighbourhood, who permitted us to wander into their yard and use it for an impromptu shoot where the various elements seen here fell into place. World Press Photo has engaged initiatives such as the African Photographers Database, a directory of emerging and professional African news photographers, photojournalists and documentary photographers reporting on cultural, economic, environmental, political and social issues on the continent, as well as sports, nature, and stories of everyday life. In the weeks ahead, I will showcase some of their work on my Instagram stories.
