7:32 pm
on our. own today my guest on the program is jody babydol. modern technology works wonders anyone can fly everyone's a photographer every day millions of cameras stay belittles up pictures every part of the world but only a few even journalists are good enough to fly to the right place at their rights and make the snap that really makes a difference. 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 reigning best photo jodi. picoult open have gone girl disfigured by taliban extremists singletary has the shocking and inspiring shocking because one cannot. injuries calmly and
7:33 pm
inspiring because the guys unveil the girls. 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 one of those. as a triumph in full journalism. very much for coming thanks for having me it's a pleasure for having me on the show well first of all i read that when somebody told you that you won the world press photo would you report you say you're joking can't believe it is that true or why couldn't you look you're not going to win well you know as you 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 over all prizes and at
7:34 pm
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 we'll use as you mentioned 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 yes so actually your picture was used in a propaganda campaign to sell the the occupation we have people that 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 saw i share and the controversy came from very many different places and therefore everyone responded in very different ways
7:35 pm
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. teleconverter i share your story and the patient self a couple of more words about the competition first of all what was your favorite picture among others among your competitors katie can you name some something else . because i quite like the one photograph i think it's him back dish of at look circus so a photograph from the cinema that's a far then he sun 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
7:36 pm
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 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 seen 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 books the 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
7:37 pm
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. earthquakes and volcanoes heroes and villains the poles 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. if the view was more like like a tsunami of human emotions the first to feel the force of the tsunami were the qantas jury they had to delve through a record pool of more than a hundred thousand photos to eventually 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 check
7:38 pm
a body people have dedicated their life to photojournalism and have a great experience but that's a completely different vision the quality of fictions they take is so much higher citizen journalism will never replace professional journalism but the two can quite exist for african well. the world press photo contest is ready to celebrate the coexistence a special mention went to nonprofessionals such as the chilean miners for photographs themselves while trapped for sixty nine days on the ground view was of the moscow exhibition a welcome by portrait of giuliana sunshine which to result to be one of the landmark images for two thousand and ten but listen it doesn't matter what we think of julian assange it's just that we call it was did not exist before and it does now and it has given a new perspective to reality and one more source of getting information and i like
7:39 pm
throughout its fifty four year history the world press photo contest was mostly about revolutions violent uprisings and then they troll 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. look exceptionally fridge. so so you don't consider your son. to be a journalist or work campaign or whatever you're just a photographer for me i feel i'm a photographer. are are 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
7:40 pm
picture takers your journal your reporters to do you do your journalistic work but i do it with a pen and you do it with a camera so with use different well for me when i'm late i share it i wasn't thinking hard to satisfy 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 cued 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 journalist 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 also at the stage where i'm trying to break stereotypes in my work sack could have photographed in a more vulnerable position i could have lost because she doesn't have is either i
7:41 pm
could have asked could she move 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 a bad guy 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. aaron baker he's a writer for time magazine she was doing a story on about eighteen different women so she actually found ok you got the names the geometry and women for afghan women shelter i was looking after i share the time and that's how i met a really through aaron back so you already knew the story they had i knew the stillness through a bit about the story they did it's horrible i mean i mean i mean what are going lives it's just unbelievable well actually comes from the southern provinces of
7:42 pm
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 has been there 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
7:43 pm
they held her down decision it was the tribal accordant court disappear out was the village moment decision. to cut off a nose in and they lifted to die and then the military the u.s. military found. you could world looked after her and then took her to women for afghan women. who are still looking after her new york now and. and they're going to and then she she came to america when she was very good over there in was what will you told us about how you were taking this picture was a difficult to convince this young leads you to pose for a for a magazine no no you see i think everyone tries to may i share and the organize a certain victim to this and i sure was actually waiting to gets a visa to go to america i wasn't the first photographer ever to photograph
7:44 pm
a 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 her own decision to to to make it public to make that to make a new face public and then to tempted to make a statement try to leave con force anyone into doing something this is in a shelter it's a 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 the session or was it just a couple of structure it's not more out of the took about three hours or so it was like a professional photograph of social yeah with a model. with lights and everything no no no no this is a tripod very basic i use standard lanes or and then a reflector sort of like
7:45 pm
a lot of the studios that's in in the shelter in a very basic room with in the shelter. jodi bieber the winner of world press photo contest spotlight would be back we'll continue this interview after we take a short break so stay with us so good. hungry for the full stop we've got. the biggest issues get a human voice face to face with the news makers on the. wealthy british style it's time to. go. to. market why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy comes
7:46 pm

7:47 pm
a husband but. the husband's on the run as far as anybody the they've become 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 not recalled from you say because i mean you know i'm not an expert in the judicial system how did the. nation change change are you sure. he talked to her you know her well this should become a new kind of a person after all that you have to you know she started as a 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 that 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
7:48 pm
new pictures where wolf actually this picture where where is it after the surgery this is a press they take now. with when she goes out oh she's she's just where is her so so so so so this is so this is something you see you can hear you know i can see that so ensure as to have an operation to jim to make it real i mean to to make a great career now i see her and she said so she just weirdness thing who did it just a lot better i think they're just waiting for her to circle logically recover to get stronger before they can operate. but it was a terrible decision to go to the united states or a great deal to stay in there were people just you had to take her out of the guy she was over when i mean 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
7:49 pm
in the united states she's she's she's just learning the language and you know what what's 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 bench an issue she does a so-called big jewelry year and she would sold a couple of things i know some bracelets and necklaces do you think she could make a living well i don't know only europe am she grown it but i think lack for i should you know i think they're at the opportunity for her in afghanistan they
7:50 pm
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 to afghanistan not to the village not to. 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 do no they're 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 say that the media are 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.
7:51 pm
i should fund what is it for the what to doing while 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 and some move you know she needs to be educated she needs care givers and it's a very expensive process so that fund the one hundred percent of the money put into their fund will go to b.b. i shit. and really it will go to her 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 b.p.i. shop so it's selling it's only 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 is it
7:52 pm
considered like normal in the radical islamists like villages and communities are going 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 like that happen 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 much within their homes they has been so homes they try and burn themselves their poor petrol and themselves and they try 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
7:53 pm
magazine told you to go to kabul and take eighteen eighteen girls are going to eighteen people said so so you did all of them only eighteen you met all of them we did eighteen stories eighteen portraits one of the success stories where they have been happy ends happy stories among mentally a photograph that oprah winfrey of afghanistan after craft a woman who is a politician and wants to become the first sportsman. mr. documentary filmmakers so i photographed a variety of different women you know not all in a vulnerable situation room so so there are a lot of happy women and yes well they are women i think they come from more educated better crowds there you know are having a very different life now mainly in kabul yeah but a bit in the villages it's still now where it's largely like gracious failed to do whatever your parents or your husband tells you to do well i would imagine it's
7:54 pm
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 less and less to settle this is just criminal disappearance and usually they go they will be very good where they were fifteen sixteen i think it's a bit older year old ji ok now listen. your previous set of pictures before you did they have again series was about the slums in south africa is that true it's about so we're young men so where do you do that how do you consider yourself like a social photographer a social campaign or it also was just in the simon that you know 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. well this is what they call it. so it's
7:55 pm
a fact it was a personal project and it became a book and it's really about you know i think that sometimes the media lamp certain countries in certain ways and before the soccer world cup in twenty ten a lot of bad media was leaving a 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 stereotype to show just the normality that can happen in south africa as i'm sure sometimes russia is showing in the certain was true so so so you there is a social own goal to what you do yeah are you not just not just another photographer well with a low bar 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
7:56 pm
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. well instead this is something hard so whether or not i don't know really not today i know it's changed to five that's very trained 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 just a reminder that my guest on the show today was jodi leave it there with the world
