Sign up for a one-day photo workshop with Stephanie Sinclair, the photographer behind the internationally renowned Too Young to Wed.
STEPHANIE SINCLAIR, b.1973, has documented the global issue of child marriage for more than a decade. Stephanie lived in the Middle East for six years and began her work on child marriage after encountering young women who had set themselves on fire in Afghanistan and learning that many of these girls had been married underage. In addition to Afghanistan, this ongoing project has led her to Nepal, India, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Yemen and the United States. The resulting images have been published worldwide in prestigious outlets such as National Geographic, The New York Times Magazine, and Paris Match among many others. Most recently, these images have won three World Press Photo awards and two Visa d’Ors at the Visa Pour L’Image photo festival in Perpignan, France. Sinclair is the recipient of numerous other awards including the CARE International Award for Humanitarian Reportage, the Overseas Press Club’s Olivier Rebbot Award and a Pulitzer Prize.
In 2010, Stephanie’s photographs of self-immolation in Afghanistan were exhibited as part of the Whitney Biennial in New York. Stephanie is an owning member of VII Photo Agency in NY. She also co-founded Elsa & Friends Soap Cooperative, a small handmade soap-making business in Ethiopia for girls who have run away from child marriage.
The workshop will be held Saturday, March 1st, 2014 from 10am to 4pm.
