get. hello again oh well tell the truth squad light begin to shift on our team algorithm today my guest on the program is jodi the. modern technology where it's more than anyone can fly everyone has at the top of every day millions of cameras day billions of pictures in every part of the world but only if you just even journalists are good enough to fly to the right place at their rights aren't and make the snap that really makes a difference between such shots 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 their spotlight we need their raining. well first photo jodi before
. the photo but have gone girl just bigger by taliban extremists a similar time is the shocking and inspiring shocking because one cannot loop at such atrocious injuries calmly and inspiring because the guys unveil the girls will to leave even after suffering such beastly brutality jordi bieber is not new to the w.p.a. competition she wanted eight times already. the jury describes the picture of bibi aisha is one of those puke otos which is immediately recognized as a triumph for jollies. her julian thank you very much for coming thanks for having me it's a pleasure for having having you on the show well first of all i read that when somebody told you that you are you won the world press photo award you report you say you're joking i can't believe it is that true or why couldn't you but you're
not going to win well you know as you said in your all previously that i've won a twelve place awards before never in a million years would i ever have thought i would have won over all prizes and at the same time because of all the controversy there for surrounding the photograph i thought that the jury would be they would it would be too much of a risk to give it the first prize he uses you mention the controller see 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's right yeah so actually your picture was used in a propaganda campaign to sell the the occupation we happy about that you see this is what's very interesting and south african coming from johannes. 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 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 that way in 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 talking about our share story in the pinch yourself a couple of more words about the competition first of all what was your favorite picture among others among your competitors can you name some something else. because i quite like the one photograph i think it's in bangladesh of at looks acas
so a photograph from the cinema and it's a father and he son walking through the water and i like that but i also thought what 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 ready 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 in the works winning world press photo is the prize awarded to the picture to the photographic work word to journalism to the story behind the picture. i have been a jury member a few years back. and rarely firstly it's about it's
a photographic competition it's the quality of the picture the composition but what they say it's 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 dimmy there were reports from an exhibition in moscow. as quakes unfold claimed as heroes and villains the poles and the nerve of two thousand and ten is here are these pictures when put together the works which won the world press photo contest the view was mind like a tsunami of human emotions the first to feel the force of the tsunami where the qantas jury they had to delve through a record pool of more than one hundred thousand photos do you think should we choose two hundred images which best reflect last year's events fifty six
photographers from twenty three countries won one of the industry's most prestigious prizes in an age where everyone carries a camera and can get a lucky shot the professional still have an age cheika party people who have dedicated their life to photo journalism and have a great experience possess a completely different vision the quality of pictures they take is so much higher citizen journalism will never replace professional journalism but the tooth 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 a welcome by portrait of giuliana songe which to result to be one of the landmark images for two. thousand and ten was about 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 a new perspective to reality and one more source of getting information from the light throughout its fifty four year history the world press photo contest was mostly about revolutions violent uprisings and when they troll disasters but there are always images ones i can risk the poor next to the brutal pictures which make most of the daily news images of beauty and truth. look exceptionally fridge. so so you don't consider yourself to be a journalist or a campaigner whatever you're just a photographer for me i feel i'm a photographer. can move between the documentary world the magazine world there are two 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 loosely when i work with photographers here in television our i always try to tell them you're not just picture takers your journal your reporters to you do your journalistic work but i do it with a pen and you do it with a camera so with you it's different well for me when i'm later and i share it i wasn't thinking how to satisfy a time magazine i was totally thinking of the creative process and working with to create that photograph but i wasn't thinking how am i going to tell when you took that picture you thought it will make a beautiful picture or you wanted to to try to do to express yourself in your position your you actually do towards well i think you know i think this photograph has a number that says a number of different things and you know as a jerk. that we knew in the process of creating i'm not thinking that but out saw
that i sure was a very beautiful woman and i'm all set the stage where i am trying to break stereotypes in my work sack could have photographed in a movie on rebel positions i could have lost because she doesn't have is either i could have asked 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 cares about asia how did you get 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 woman so she actually found ok you got the names the geometry and woman for afghan women shelter was looking after i share the
time and that's how i'm a to really through aaron bank so you already knew the story they had i knew the stillness through a bit about the story this it's horrible i mean i mean i mean what are the lives it's just unbelievable well actually comes from the southern provinces of afghanistan and. it's i think it was twelve or fourteen economy but 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 then you run away from your husband you go to jail or that she received amnesty and her father came to collect her and took her back her oh ought to be raised has been due to that has to go first. and there was
a court which happened to be in that area it was a taliban court. and they 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 decision it was the tribal accordant court to say yeah it was a village moment decision. to cut off and 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 in new york now and they're going to and then she she came to america when yes you are a good over there in was what will you told us about how you were taking this picture was it difficult to convince this year leads you to pose for a for a magazine no no you see i think everyone tries to may i share and the
organization a victim to this and i sure was actually waiting to get a visa to go to america i wasn't the first photographer ever to photograph or all journalist to write about her and i think that i don't know for sure but i think women for afghan women and i sure made the decision that the more publicity they got around her and what happened to her perhaps the media would help to get the same as it was who own decision to to to make it public to make that choice to make a new face public and to to drink a statement tightly you can't force anyone into doing something this is in a sheltered very structured structured and protected place so our couldn't just walk in and say ah please you know can i photograph you it's definitely doesn't work that way with this session or was it just a couple of stories. it's not nora if i took about three hours so it was like
a professional photograph of social yeah with a model. i would like to know everything no no i know this is a tripod i'm very basic how you stand. and then are afflicted so they don't like that i like the studio's not not that's in the in the 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 to get. hungry for the full story we've got. the biggest issues get a human voice face to face with the news makers.
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 judy we talked about our share of the girl you photographed in afghanistan here we see this award winning picture once again was there any any investigation other than this tribal court decision to titter killer actually into the case so the army up
and yeah i think pressure you know never e one wrote about this or knew about it all 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 thing is a court case that's opened and they're looking for a husband but the husband's on the run as far as i knew the the they become this is what they're saying do you think do you think that in the court will. will be able to to to to to make an unbiased decision. well it's not recalled from you say because i mean you know i'm not an expert in judicial system how did the. mutilation change change are you sure. he you talked to her you know her well this should become a new kind of a person of dog that you have to you know there's one major posttraumatic stress
test 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 said they don't want to operate on her because she's still emotionally not ready for it but but we do have new pictures where wolf actually this picture way where it isn't that after the surgery this is a press they take notice her with when she goes out oh she's just where is it her are so so so so so this is so this is something you see you can hear you know i can see that so ensure i still have an operation to jim to make it real i mean to to make it my career now i see her and she said so she just witnessed going to be just a lot better i think they're just waiting for her to sack a logically recover to give the stronger before they can operate. it was a term decision to go to the united states or
a greater distance and there were people just you had to take her out of the way she was over when i made 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's she's did learn english language or in the you know what was she going to do well at the moment she's making jewelry and all i know today because i'm in very close communication with the organization is that she makes jewelry she's got a very small. life right now she sees them in mom once a week. she knows how to use the internet she she surfs 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. i know that you you mentioned you she does the so-called big jewelry year and she
would sold a couple of things i know some bracelets and necklaces do you think she can make a living well i don't know only repaint she grown it but i think lack for i should you know i think they're at the opportunity for her in afghanistan they wasn't she was either going to stay at the shelter or she there's no way she could ever go home. do you think that she may be able to return home to afghanistan not to the village and not to her. but i mean if she the painting what she does i mean perhaps she can go back to couple and work there who move so do you think she will want to go back on their hard earned do there still fickle 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 her but i don't get
on the phone and have a conversation with her you know they're still trying to protect her from the media you set up the media a chauffeur and the foundation no no i don't want internet no they say that but us i really try wherever i go to advocates and ask people to donate funds to the b.b. i should fund what is it for to go out 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 money in some movie you know she needs to be educated she needs caregivers and it's a very expensive process so that fund one hundred percent of the money put into their fund will go to b.b. i shit. and really it will go to living in york what i have done is i've created a limited edition of prints of b.b. i share that i'm hoping museums or that it's very limited will collect and all those fans will go to the p.b. i should say it's selling so you like the scientific journal you listen.
how common in general and if you know if you can give an answer to that when are such things that happened that happened. to our show i mean i mean is it this is considered like normal in the radical islamists like villages and communities are going to to do such things to to do what i like to think of this more as domestic violence more than looking at it from the perspective of islam i don't connect the two i don't connect that would you call it an exception or things like that happen i would say things that that happened 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 much within their homes they has been homes they're trying to burn themselves their poor petrol and
themselves and their track and that's sad in that way so there's definitely violence against women. we started talking about this story you certainly saw it all started when time magazine told used to go to kabul and take eighteen eighteen girls about eighty eight eighteen people said so so you did all of them only eighteen you met all of the we did eighty stories eighteen portraits one of the success stories where they had be happy ends happy stories and one mentally affair graph that oprah winfrey of afghanistan a photograph to a woman who's a politician and wants to become the first sportsman. mr. documentary filmmakers so i photographed a variety of different woman you know not all in a vulnerable situation so so there are a lot of happy women and yes well they are women i think they come from more
educated backgrounds their you know are having a very different life now mainly in kabul yeah but a bit in the villages it's still now where they were it's what i believe or like gracious fareed to do whatever your parents or your husband tells you to do well i would imagine it's similar to that but i'm not saying that every household sure is really is violent as you mentioned like twelve or fourteen she was we when she was given the right to do two to two to the future has been so this is this is the age where when the girls are usually you know that's nice to settle this is just said look this criminal disappearing and usually they go there will be very good where they were fifteen sixteen think of a good old a year old ok not listen to. your previous sort of pictures before you did they have again series was about the slums in south africa is that true it's about so waiter young man so where do you do that how do you consider yourself like
a social photographer a social campaign or it also was just an assignment that you know so return really came about the project on the township and call it a slum because i don't see it as a slam. well this is what they call it. it's a country but it was a personal project and it became a book and it's really about you know i think that sometimes the media lamps are two 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. around aids it was around poverty and no one was just showing the normality that also exists within our country and so waiter in a way was to break down the styria time to show just the normality that can happen in south africa as i'm sure sometimes russia is showing in the certain wasn't true
so so so there is a social good to what you do yeah are you not just not just another photographer with with a mobile that's me this was really about upgrading to a theory of the times and it was to try and break down that fear that people have about the end. what are you working on now. i have been in i think six countries in one month only here for mainly for world press but just before i was in moscow i was in london photographing a portrait series in an area in east london called shortage. and it deals a lot in fantasy where her eastenders to something are so wet oh no not i don't know really not today i know it's changed a fine that's very trendy and over and you are your exhibit
ssion here in moscow i think i think it's doomed to be a success because because because the world pretty popular in this country. really thank you thank you very much for being with us and just a reminder that my guest on the show today was jodi leave it there with other world press photo that's it for now from all of us if you want to have your sales spotlight or have someone in mind who you think i should be next and just drop me a log that i'll bring up and party t.v. are you for let's keep the show interactive we'll be back with your comments on what's going on in and outside russia until then stay on to our team and take you to get.
