I am glad to know that I have been nominated for the 2017 Joop Swart Masterclass. I was selected with my long-term project “Souls of Syrians” by Ramón Reverté (Spain), editor in chief and creative director of RM’s photo book program. The final 12 participants will be announced during the World Press Photo Festival, taking place in Amsterdam 20-22 April. https://www.worldpressphoto.org/
