AWARDS WINNERS 2018 Nov 2018

New York: Kristofer Dan-Bergman

Title: Evidence of Resilience

"The photo is just one in a series of 40-50 pictures depicting the inhabitants of 15 villages in Eastern Africa (Rwanda, Burundi, and Uganda). I met the founder of the NGO Spark Micro Grants at a convention hosted by the Global Good Fund (GGF). I had helped the GGF in the past, documenting their work (leadership and fundraising development for smaller NGOs) and I took a liking to Spark’s approach in helping these villages. I spoke to GGF who helped me get in contact with Spark. The agreement was that I was going to document the work they do in the villages with stills and video as long as I could do his personal project with these portraits.

The winning image is from one of the first villages we visited in Rwanda and the name of the village is Kintobo"
