Sahar Speaks II

The first Sahar Speaks visual journalism workshop and training for Afghan female journalists came to a close.

I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to teach this group of young local reporters over the last two weeks in Kabul, Afghanistan. 

They turned out to be a very talented new generation of photographers, videographers and documentary makers, eager to tell the stories that matter in their own country.

I can't wait to see the work they'll produce in the near future.

Stateless in Ukraine


"For a small community of ethnic Turks who have lived peacefully in Ukraine for twenty-five years, the current conflict is allowing the dream of a distant homeland to resurface. “With this war, Ukrainians have nowhere to go. But we do,” says Makhmud Manmedov, who manages a Turkish café in the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson. Somewhat amusingly called “Big Shef” in English, the restaurant could easily be mistaken for sitting on a quiet Istanbul side street."
