3:32 pm
hello again oh well time to spotlight a intrusion on our kids i'll bring our lunch a day my guest on the program is jody babydol. modern technology works wonders any one of the flock everyone's a starter every day millions of cameras day and billions of pictures every part of the world but only a few just even journalists are good enough to fly to the right place had the right side and make the snap that really makes a difference but in such shops out of thousands is exactly what the world press photo is all about but what's it like to be called the best on the planet and what does it take to nail spotlight we need the reigning best photo queen jodi. because of an afghan girl just bigger by taliban extremists
3:33 pm
a single terrorist and shocking and inspiring shocking because one cannot get such atrocious injuries calmly inspiring because the guys on bail the girls will to leave even after suffering such beast negrito take johnny bieber is not new to the w.p. competition. eight times already. the jury describes the teacher of b.b. are you sure it's one of those. which is immediately revised as a triumph for joining us. thank you very much for coming thanks for having me it's a pleasure for me having on the show well first of all i read that when somebody told you the e.u. won the world press photo when you report you say you're joking can't believe it is . true or why couldn't you get you're going to win well you know as you sit in your all previously that i've won eight will place the world before never in
3:34 pm
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 which it would be too much of a risk to give it the first prize you since you mentioned the control received as far as i remember this picture this very picture appeared on the front plagiarism of time magazine and the v headline read what happens if we leave afghanistan that's right yes so actually your picture was used in a propaganda campaign to sell the occupation. 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 because that's not our politics they so i share and the controversy came from very
3:35 pm
many different places and therefore everyone responded in very different ways depending on the politics depending on the country they came from depending on a whole lot of different variables so it didn't affect me in there to a in a in actual fact it was a catalyst and 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 though of the story in the pensions of a couple more words about the completion first of all what was your favorite picture among others among your competitors can you name them something else. i quite like the. one photograph i think its impact latish of a truck sack is so a photograph from the cinema it's a far then he son walking through the water and i like that but i also thought what
3:36 pm
was very interesting for me more then then appreciating the photography so much was it was interesting to see the chilean the chilean miners photographed and the ground. there were the clarity so it speaks a lot about citizen journalism. speaking about 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 is the prize awarded to the pitt's chair to the photographic we're going to 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 is the quality of the picture the composition but the gates the initial thing it's totally around the photograph and then of course the
3:37 pm
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 from an exhibition in moscow. a square expandable tweeners heroes and villains the poles and the nerve of two thousand and ten is here and these pictures when put together the works which won the world press for the contest here the view was mind like a tsunami of human emotions the first to feel the force of the tsunami were to count as jewelry they had to dull through a wreckage of more than a hundred thousand food to feed should we choose two hundred images. each best proof like last season fans fifty six photographers from twenty three countries won one of the industry's most prestigious prizes in an age where everyone carries
3:38 pm
a camera and then gets a lucky shot the professional still have an age it's like a party people who have dedicated their lives to photo journalism and have a great experience but that's a completely different vision the quota features they take is so much higher citizen journalism will never replace professional journalism but the two can quite exist perfectly well. the world class photo contest is ready to celebrate the coexistence a special mention went to nonprofessionals such as the chilean miners photographed themselves while trapped for sixty nine days on the ground the view was of the moscow exhibition welcomed by portrait of julian our son which to result to be one of them and mark images for two thousand and ten but most of it doesn't matter what we think of julian assange it's just that we call it is did not exist before and it does now and it has given
3:39 pm
a new perspective to reality and one more source of getting information and i like throughout its fifty four year history the world press photo contest was mostly about revolutions violent uprisings and clinical disasters but there are always images ones i can rest the poor on next to the brutal pictures which make most of the daily news images of beauty and truth of nature look exceptionally fridge and. so so you don't consider yourself to be a journalist or campaign or whatever huge are you just a photographer for me i feel i'm a photographer. between the documentary world the magazine world world i feel that you know my work isn't totally journalistic in a way after i also bring something of myself into the world into what i would with
3:40 pm
photographers here in television are i always try to tell them you're not just going to take is your journal your reporters to do you do your journalistic i do it with a pen and you do it with a camera so it's different so for me when i later. i wasn't thinking how to satisfy time magazine i was totally thinking of the creative process and working with i should. to create their photograph but i wasn't thinking how am i going to tell it when you took that picture you thought it will make a beautiful picture or you wanted to do to get to express yourself in your position your your 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 there when you're in the process of creating i'm not thinking that but out saw that i sure was a very beautiful woman and i'm also at the stage where i'm trying to break
3:41 pm
stereotypes in our work so i could have photographed her in a more vulnerable 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 how did you mean to tell a soul bit more about about how you got into the story well i went to see time magazine in new york and they gave me an assignment erin 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 of the gionta and women for afghan women shelter was looking after i share the time and that's how i need to really through iren day so you already knew the story that i knew the stillness the bit about the story the arab mean i mean i mean
3:42 pm
what arab lives it's just unbelievable well actually comes from the southern provinces of afghanistan and. it's i think it was twelve or fourteen narconon into the detail she was given away to cover a dispute that happened with the family and she was really abused quite badly within 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 run away from your husband you go to jail that she received amnesty and her father came to collect turn to bet her oh oughtn't to be originals 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 say that as punishment to teach other women in the village not to run away from
3:43 pm
their husbands to cut off their nose and ears and they held it down decisions it was the tribal according to court decision art was the village woman decision. to cut off a nurse in and they lifted to die and then the military the u.s. military found the. world looked after her and intricately woman for afghan women. who are still looking after him in new york now and they're going to go and she she came to america when she was revealed over there in was what will you told us about how you were taking this picture was it difficult to convince this your leader to pose for for a magazine you know no you see i think everyone tries to may i share and the organization a victim to this and i she was actually waiting to get
3:44 pm
a visa to go to america i wasn't the first photographer if it's a photograph a journalist writes about her and i think there are i don't know for sure but i think women for afghan women and i actually made the decision that the more publicity they got around her and what happened to perhaps the media would help to get the same as it was who own decision to to do. make it public to me that to make a new face public and to to do to make a statement so actually you can't force anyone to do something this is in a shelter a very structured structured and protected place so i couldn't just walk in and say are please you know can i photograph you it's definitely doesn't work that way either so sure was it just a couple of structural none are up to three hours or so it was like a professional photograph obsession over the model. with lights and everything no
3:45 pm
no i know the answer tripod very basic i use standard planes and then reflect that i think i like the studios that's in in the shelter in a very basic room with in the shelter. jodi bieber the winner of the world press photo contest spotlight would be back we'll continue this interview after we take a short break so stay with us ok. twenty years ago largest country. where. wealthy british royals.

3:47 pm
a killer actually into the case so young up and yet you know i think pressure you know everyone wrote about her so knew about it or made a statement i mean the taliban even made a statement to say they don't advocate something like this and now the father in law has been arrested is a quote case opened and they are looking for a husband but. the husband on the run as far as i knew the 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. we wanted to call it from going to say because i mean you know i'm not an expert in educational systems how did the new solution change change or leisure. he talked to her you know her world this should become a new kind of approach not all that you have here and you know she started as
3:48 pm
a major posttraumatic stress and she still suffers currently she couldn't have an operation she's in your. she lives in queens women for afghan women look after her but she was meant to have the operation and the surgeon say they don't want to operate on her because she's still emotionally not ready for it but we do have new pictures well for actually this picture where when he isn't that after the surgery this is a press critic know her. when she goes out oh she swears in her so so so so so this is also this is something you see you can hear you can see there so ensure our standing operation to to make it real i mean to to make it right alina i sing and sing so so she just witnessed things you did you just look back you know i think they're just waiting for her to sack illogically recover to give the stronger before they can operate. but it was
3:49 pm
a terrible decision to go to the united states to greater than just the world people just you had to take her out of play she was sober when i need to she was really anxious to go to america but really the main reason why she wants a new nose in is i mean can you imagine what it must feel like. what awaits in the united states she she she's just learning the language and you know what what's she going to do what the moment she's making jewelry and all i know today because i'm in very close communication with but we're going as a show is that she makes jewelry she's got a very small. right now she sees an eman once a week. she knows how to use the internet she she serves afghan with sites and that's really what she does for now but i'm sure with english and when she gets emotionally stronger you know when things could open up for her but i
3:50 pm
know that you you mentioned you she doesn't suit all be jewelry year and she been sold a couple of things i know some bracelets and necklaces do you think she can make a living well i don't know she can loan it but i think lack for i should you know i think they're up the chain a tea for her in afghanistan they wasn't she was are they going to stay at the shelter or should there's no way she could ever go home. do you think that she may be able to return home just not to the village to go to the national but i mean if she the pain in what she does i mean perhaps she can go back to a couple and work there. so do you think she will want to give up on there are dying to know their stuff occultists 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 pm
her but i don't get on the phone and have a conversation with her you know they're still trying to protect them from the media you set up the mediation first and the very foundation no no i don't want into that no they say that but us really try wherever i go she advocates and ask people to donate funds to the big what is it what to do in war 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 care givers and it's a very expensive process so that found a hundred percent of the money put into their family will go to the i share and really it will go to her living in york. what i have done is i've created a limited edition of prints of beading i share that i'm hoping museums or that it's
3:52 pm
very limited will collect and all those fans will go to the people. selling so we like a scientific you know. how common in general if you know if you can give an answer to that one hour such things that happened it happened. fleischer i mean i mean is it isn't considered like normal in the radical islamists villages and communities are going to do such things to what i like to think of this more. domestic violence more than looking at it from the perspective of islam i don't connect that i don't connect would you call it an exception or things like that happen i would say things that there happened but i don't know how often to their extremity that you do for example when i was in kabul i went to the self immolation hospital where because women are suffering so
3:53 pm
much within their homes they has been soames they try and turn themselves poor petrol on themselves and their track and it's sad 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 well eighteen you met only we did eighty stories eighteen portraits one of them success stories where they are the happy ends happy stories among mentally a photograph that oprah winfrey of afghanistan africa graphed a woman who is a politician and wants to become 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 are
3:54 pm
a lot of happy women and while they are woman i think they come from more educated backgrounds they're you know are having a very different life now is mainly in couple years ago via billy but in the villages it's still now where the rates largely although gracious trained to do whatever your parents or your husband close you to do well i would imagine it's similar to that but i'm not saying that every household sure israelis file you mentioned like twelve or fourteen she was we when she was given away. to to to the future has been so this is this is the age where when the girls are usually you know less and less to settle this is just criminal this is and usually they go. they get where they were fifteen sixteen thinking a bit older children ok that wasn't. your previous sort of poachers before you did they have get serious was about the slums in south africa is that it's about so
3:55 pm
we're young that's the work you've got how do you consider yourself a local social photographer a social campaign or it also was just an assignment wishing. so return really came about the project on the corner to sloan because i don't see it as a slam. well this is what they call it and. that 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 it was really about crime it was around a it was around poverty and now. and was just showing the normality that also exists within our country you and so waiter in a way was to break down the stereotype to show just the normality that can happen
3:56 pm
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 it's just not just another photographer with with a mobile that's legal it was really about breaking thank you. and it was to try and break down their fear that people have about the and. what are you working on now. i have been in i think six countries in one month only yeah and for mainly for world prints back just before i was in moscow i was in london photographing a portrait series in an area in east london called shorty church group and it deals a lot in fantasy. brought east to something hard so whether or not that they're really not today i know it's changed a five story changing kind of
3:57 pm
a and you're you're exhibiting here in moscow i think i think it's it's doomed to be a success because because because the world can properly profit 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 leaders there would of the world press photo that's it for now from all of us if you want to have your sales spotlight were up someone in mind here in question to the newsstand just drop me a larger elderly note and hearty t.v. are you from the t.v. show interactive we'll be back with your comments on what's going on in and outside russia and so many stay on our team and take your kids.
