Eddy van Wessel wins Dutch photojournalism award Zilveren camera

Today the jury choose Eddy van Wessel as the winner of this renowned Dutch photojournalism award. His series in Aleppo convinced because of high quality,

a strong varied series, and his own initiative to go to Aleppo in the first place.

I didn’t take these risks but ended up second place in the same categories as he did, being Foreign news (singles and series) with my series on 23 refugees in hungerstrike in Brussels. Being in photojournalism for two years now, I’m quite happy with me ‘almost winning’ !-)
