Informācija par portfolio skates ekspertiem / Information about the review experts:
 

Jan Grarup (DK)
1st Prize WPPh 2013 Sports Feature Stories category
Born in Denmark in 1968, Jan Grarup has been reporting for more than two decades on conflict around the world, including the Gulf War, the Rwandan genocide, the siege of Sarajevo, and the Palestinian uprising against Israel in 2000. His body of work reflects his belief in photojournalism’s role as a witness, an historical record, and an instrument of change and of its necessity in telling the stories of people who are powerless to tell their own. Grarup has been honored with some of the photography industry’s and human rights organization’s most prestigious awards, including two nominations for the W. Eugene Smith memorial fund for humanistic photography, eight World Press Photo awards, special mention for the Leica Oskar Barnack Award, two UNICEF children’s awards, five times Photographer of the Year Award in Denmark, and many more. Recent photographs include those of the earthquake in Haiti taken for Time and Dagbladet Information. In November 2011, Grarup joined The New York Times as a staff photographer, covering Africa and the Middle East, especially Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and the Horn of Africa. In late 2011, he photographed the refugee camp in Dadaab, Kenya, and during 2012 traveled extensively in Somalia, producing in-depth reportage on several issues faced by the Somali population. He has twice been a master at the World Press Joop Swart Masterclass.
