Paula Bronstein won the 2011 FotoEvidence Book Award

Getty Images Photographer Paula Bronstein has been selected to receive the first annual FotoEvidence Book Award for her work documenting daily life in Afghanistan over the last ten years. This fall, FotoEvidence will publish her work in a book entitled, “Afghanistan: Between Life and War”.

Paula Bronstein’s work explores both the suffering and devastation visited on Afghanistan during the last ten years and the daily lives of ordinary Afghans as they live, work and raise their families in the shadow of war. Her photographs contain painful and shocking images but also bring us into intimate contact with everyday existence in a land that has been visited by war for most of 30 years.

FotoEvidence received more than 60 submissions for the Book Award, documenting injustice in 41 different countries. In addition to Ms. Bronstein, Ms. Bachevanova announced four finalists and a special mention, all of whom will exhibit in a FotoEvidence sponsored group show in New York, during the fall of 2011. The finalists are Javier Arcenillas from Spain, William Daniels and Lizzie Sadin from France, and Majid Saeedi, Iran. The special mention went to Boniface Mwangi from Kenya.

A sample of Ms. Bronstein and the finalists’ images, statements and bios can be viewed at FotoEvidence.com in the Book Award galleries.
