3:32 am
yanno welcome to spotlight baby and fish on our. lunch today my guest on the program is jody the. modern technology works wonders anyone of the flock everyone's a photographer every day millions of cameras take billions of pictures every part of the world but only a few even journalists are good enough to fly to the right place at the right side and make the snap that really makes a difference in such shops out of thousands is exactly what the world press photo competition is all about but what's it like to be called the best on the planet and what does it take to nail spotlight with me there raining well past photo queen jodi before. we go to an afghan girl disfigured by taliban extremists
3:33 am
a single terrorist was shocking and inspiring shocking because one cannot loop at such atrocious injuries calmly inspiring because the guys on bail the girls will to leave even after suffering such beastly brutality johnny bieber is not new to the w.p.a. competition she wanted eight times already. the jury describes the picture of bibi ayesha as one of those. immediately recognized as a triumph for the journalism. thank you very much for coming thanks for having me it's a pleasure for me to share well first of all i read that when somebody told you the e.u. won the world press photo were you report you say you're joking it is a. true work well why couldn't you but you're not going to win well you know as you
3:34 am
sit in your all previously that i've won eight will place awards before never in a million years would i ever have thought i would have won the overall prize and at the same time because of all the controversy there for surrounding the photograph i thought that the jury would be there with it would be too much of a risk to give it the first prize i will use as you mention good control received as far as i remember this picture this very picture appeared on the front page of time magazine and the headline read what happens if we leave afghanistan that right now so actually your picture was used in a propaganda campaign to sell the the occupation we have. you see this is what's very interesting and south african coming from johannes food if you showed that cover to people in south africa they didn't even notice the headline
3:35 am
because that's not our politics they saw i share and the controversy came from very many different places and therefore everyone responded in very different ways the pending on the politics depending on the country they came from depending on a whole lot of different variables so it in effect me in that way in actual fact it was a catalyst that it spread through the blogosphere world it was on t.v. it was everywhere and actually it was furthering and speaking about violence against women and more and more people were seeing this before we start the immersion story and the patience of a couple more words about the competition first of all what was your favorite picture among others among your competitors can you name them something else. and i quite like that. one photograph i think it's in bangladesh of that it looks like
3:36 am
a so a photograph from the cinema that's a far then he son walking through the water and i like that i also thought what was very interesting for me more than then appreciating the photography so much was it was interesting to see the chilean the chilean miners photographed and the ground by themselves there were the clarity so it speaks a lot about citizen journalism. well speaking of citizen jews speaking about awarding prizes well it's not the first time when i ask this question to myself when i see the winners a work of the works winning world press photo this is the prize awarded to the pits chair to the photographic work word journalism to the story behind the picture. i have been a jury member a few years back and really firstly it's about it's a photographic competition with the quality of the picture the composition but the
3:37 am
dates the initial thing it's totally around the photograph and then of course the journalistic value after the fact is as important but really it's a photographic competition well let's take a closer look at this year's winners of the world press photo contest spotlights in the d. me there were reports problem that addition in moscow. oh square expands all tweeners heroes and villains the bulls and the nerve of two thousand and ten is year round these pictures when put together the works which won the world press photo contest here the view was mind like a tsunami of human emotions the first to feel the force of the tsunami were the contours jury they had to delve through a record pool more than a hundred thousand to choose two hundred images. each best reflects last year's events fifty six photographers from twenty three countries won one of the
3:38 am
industry's most prestigious prizes in an age where everyone carries a camera and can get a lot of shots the professional still have an age shy of about eight people who have dedicated their lives to photo journalism and have a great experience but that's a completely different vision they want to features they take is so much higher citizen journalism will never replace professional journalism but the two can co-exist perfectly well. the world press photo contest is ready to celebrate the coexistence a special mention went to nonprofessionals such as the chilean miners who photographed themselves while trapped for sixty nine days on the ground the view was of the moscow exhibition are welcomed by protrude of giuliana's sunshine which to result to be one of the landmark images for two thousand and ten was the butler it doesn't matter what we think of julian assange it's just that we call it was did
3:39 am
not exist before and it does now and it has given a new perspective to reality and one more source of getting information. throughout its fifty four year history the world press photo contest was mostly about revolutions violent uprisings and literal disasters but there are always images ones i can reach the poor and next to the brutal pictures which make most of the daily news images of beauty and truth. look exceptionally fridge. so you don't consider yourself to be a journalist or a campaigner whatever your age or you're just a photographer for me i feel i'm a photographer. can move between the documentary world and the magazine world. i feel that you know my work isn't totally
3:40 am
journalistic in a way after i also bring something of myself into the world the one i would with photographers here in television are i always try to tell them you're not just taking your journal or your reporters to you do your journalistic point i do it with a pen and you do it with a camera so here's different well for me when i meet i share i wasn't thinking hard to satisfy time magazine i was totally thinking of the creative process and working with i should. to create that photograph but i wasn't thinking how am i going to tell but when you took that picture you thought it would make a beautiful picture or you wanted to to try to get to express yourself and your position your you attitude towards well i think you know i think this photograph has a number it says a number of different things and you know as a journalist that we knew in the process of creating i'm not thinking that but out
3:41 am
saw that i sure was a very beautiful woman and i will set the stage where i'm trying to break stereotypes in our work sack could have photographed in a movie line rable position i could have lost because she doesn't have ears either i'm going to ask could she moves her hair away and i didn't do that and i wanted to show her in a position of power and not in a position of of being vulnerable this is who killed you're about asia how did you get to tell us a bit more about about how you got into the story but i went to see time magazine in new york and they gave me an assignment aaron baker who's the writer for time magazine she was doing a story on about eighteen different women so she actually found ok you got the names the gian and woman for afghan women shelter was looking after the time and that's how i make to really through aaron baker so you already knew the story
3:42 am
that i knew that still has to get out the story it's horrible i mean i mean anywhere approves it's just unbelievable well actually comes from the southern provinces of afghanistan and. it's i think it was twelve or fourteen knock on a member of the detail she was given away to cover a dispute that happened with the family and she was really abused quite badly with in her in-laws home and so she decided to run away and. she ran to her neighbors thinking she would seek refuge in but they handed her into the police and in afghanistan basically if you are a woman and you ran away from your husband you're going to jail that she received amnesty and her father came to collect turned to combat oh ought to be raised has been due to that has to go has been there and there was a court which happened to be in that area because the taliban court. and they
3:43 am
say that as punishment to teach other women in the village not to run away from their husbands to cut off her nose and ears and they held it down decisions it was the tribal occurrence of this riyadh was a village woman decision. to cut off a nose in and they lifted to die and then the military the u.s. military found the. world looked after her and then took her to women for afghan women. who are still looking after her new york now. and they're going to and then she she came to america when she worried it over that he was in what will you told us about how you were taking this picture was it difficult to convince this year leading to pose for her for a magazine no no you see i think everyone tries to may. and the
3:44 am
organization a victim to this and i she was actually waiting to get a visa to go to america i wasn't the first photographer ever to photograph or all journalist writes about her and i think that i don't know for sure but i think women for afghan women and i actually made the decision that a more publicity they got around her and what happened to perhaps the media would help to get the same as it was who owned decision to to to make it public to being bench so they can face public and tilted to drink a statement certainly can't force anyone into doing something this is in a shelter it's a very structured structured and protected place. sa couldn't just walk in and say ah peas or can i photograph you and they flatly doesn't work that way with the session or was it just a couple of slow troops not norah i took about three hours or so it was like
3:45 am
a professional photograph of social club with a model i would like to know everything you know now i know there's a tripod very basic how you stand the planes are and then are afflicted sort of like a guy like a studio session on our backs in the shelter in a very basic room with in the shelter. jodi bieber the winner of the world press photo conference spotlight would be back we'll consider this interview that we take a short break so stay with us the big. cut. to the show would be soon which will brighten if you knew about the song from the
3:46 am
silence to the pressure to see. these stunts on t.v. dot com. i. guess. i. guess. welcome back to spotlight i am now going are going just to remind you that my guest on the show today is jody bieber the winner of world press photo contest julie we talk about the girl you photographs of afghanistan he'll receive this award winning picture once again was there any any investigation other than this
3:47 am
tribal court decision to teach your children actually into the case so yummy happened yeah i think you know everyone wrote about us or knew about it all made a statement and in the taliban even made a statement to say they don't advocate something like this and now the father in law has been arrested thing is a court case opened and they're looking for a husband from the. husband on the run as far as i knew the because this is what they're saying. do you think do you think the court will. will be able to to to to to make an unbiased decision. well it's actually called when you say because i mean you know i'm not an expert in judicial system how did the new to asian change change asia. hugh you talk to her you know her well
3:48 am
this should become a new kind of a person after all go out and that you have to. run major posttraumatic stress disorder she still suffers currently she couldn't have a parade and she is in your. she lives in queens woman for afghan woman look after her but she was meant to have the operation and the surgeon said they don't want to operate on her because she's still emotionally not really for it but we do have new pictures there wolf this picture way where it isn't that after the surgery this is a press they take. her. when she goes out oh sure she swears in her are so so so so so this is so this is something you see you can hear you can see there so i mean she has to have an operation to get him to make it real i mean she could make a great career now i see so she just witnessed being who did it just a little better i think they're just waiting for her to circle logically recover to
3:49 am
give the stronger before they can operate. once interim decision to go to the united states are a great story there were people just you had to take her out of the play she was so renowned later she was really anxious to go to america i think really the main reason why she wants a new nose and ears and in kenya imagine what it must feel like. what awaits in the united states she she she's just learning the language in you know what what she will do what the moment she's making jewelry and all i know today because i'm in very close communication with her organization is that she makes jewelry she's got a very small. life right now she sees an in mom once a week. she knows how to use the internet she searched afghan websites. and that's really what she does for now but i'm sure with english and when she gets emotionally stronger you know then things could open up for her but i
3:50 am
know that you you mentioned you should know that so called be jewelry year and she been sold a couple things i know some bracelets and necklaces do you think she can make a living well i don't know perhaps she grown it but i think lack for i should you know i think they're the opportunity for her in afghanistan they wasn't she was either going to stay at the shelter or there's no way she could ever go home. do you think that she may be able to return home just not to have really gotten. back to me i mean if she painting watch it does i mean perhaps she can go back to kabul and would play. so do you think she will want to get up on their own do know their statistical to say i mean i really don't know you know no one has access to i share i have very close access to the the organization that looks after
3:51 am
her but i don't get on the phone and have a conversation with you know they're still trying to protect you from the media you so that the media oceanfront the foundation oh no i did that well into you know they say to that let us really try wherever i go to advocates and ask people to donate funds to the baby ayesha that was it from the guy with the doing well really you know it's very expensive living in new york and it's not that she's going to go shopping with their nanny and some you know she needs to be educated she needs caregivers and it's a very expensive process so they're found their hundred percent of the money put into their fund will go to a baby i share and really it will go to living in new york. what i have done is i've created a limited edition of prints of b.b. and i share that i'm hoping museums or that it's very limited will collect and all
3:52 am
those funds will go to the people. selling it so we like the scientific you know. how common in general if you know if you can give an answer to that one are such things that happened it happened. russia i mean i mean is it isn't considered like normal in the radical islamists like villages and communities are going to be such things to what i like to think of us more. domestic violence more than looking at it from a perspective of islam i don't connect that i don't connect that we can call it an exception or things like that happen i would say things that happen but i don't know how often to their extremity but you do for example when i was in kabul i went to the self immolation hospital where because women are suffering so
3:53 am
much within their homes he has been zones they try and turn themselves their poor petrol on themselves and they try to commit suicide in that way so there's definitely violence against women. we started talking about this story you said you saw it all started when time magazine told you to go to kabul and take eighteen eighteen years of age eighteen people said so so you did all of them only eighteen you know all that we did eighteen stories eighteen portraits one of the success stories were the happy happy endings had these stories among mentally a photograph that oprah winfrey of afghanistan i photographed a woman who is a politician and wants to be counted the first sports minister. a documentary filmmaker. years so i photographed a variety of different women you know not all in a vulnerable situation so so there are a lot of happy women in
3:54 am
a sense well they are women i think they come from more educated backgrounds they're you know are having a very different life now mainly in kabul you will hear a little bit in the villages that still now where the riots were largely the regulations varied to do whatever your parents or you have been close you to do well i would imagine it's similar to that but i'm not saying that every household sure is this violent as you mentioned like twelve or fourteen she was we when she was given right. to to be fusion has been so this is this is the age where women are usually you know less and less to settle this is a criminal disappearance and usually they do. get word of what fifteen sixteen think it's a bit older you will be ok that wasn't. your previous set of pictures before you did they have again series was about the slums in south africa is that true it's
3:55 am
about serif young men so we'll tell you what do you consider yourself a social photographer a social can in or it also was just in the same english you know no so return really came about the project on the township i don't call it a slum because i don't see it as a slum. this is what they call it. packed it was a personal project and it became a book and it's really about you know i think that sometimes the media lumps it in countries in certain ways and before the soccer world cup in twenty ten a lot of bad media was leaving south africa and really about crime it was around a it was around poverty and now. one was just showing the normality that also exists within our country and so waiter in a way was to break down the stereotype to show just the normality there can happen
3:56 am
in south africa as i'm sure sometimes russia is showing in the search and wasn't sure so so so there is a social own good to what you do. you know just look at just another photographer with with a low ball i mean this was really upgraded into a theory of these bands and it was to try and break down their fear that people have a party and. what are you working on now. i have in i think six countries in one month only here for mainly for world press that's just before i was in moscow i was in london photographing a portrait series in an area in east london called shorty which. and it deals a lot in fantasy. well instead this is something like a wet oh no i don't worry like that today no it's changed
3:57 am
a fine that's very changed the. and you're you're exhibit. here in moscow i think i think kids it's doomed to be a success because because because the world appropriate partner in this country. really thank you thank you very much for being with us and just that just a reminder that my guest on the show today was getting leverage there would argue that well i suppose that's it for now from all of us if you want to have yourself spotlight where someone in mind here in question is when it's time to drop real are at al green of ad party t v are you from the t.v. show interactive we'll be back with some comments on what's going on in and outside russia and so then stay on to our team and take you to get.
