Thank you to all the jurors of the International Photography Awards (IPA), 2020, for honoring our multimedia series, ‘Gambia – victims, and resisters‘ This honorable mention – in the Deeper Perspective category – is yet another step towards reaching a wider audience with this body of work, particularly for all the victims, resisters, and survivors who have been part of this ongoing project. We thank them for sharing their experiences with us. Jason Florio & Helen Jones-Florio

We are thrilled to be chosen for The Photoville FENCE, 2020, with our on-going series, ‘Gambia – victims and resisters’ – a multimedia body of work that began back in 2016. With the blessing of those we have photographed and filmed, our intention has always been to share the very personal and traumatic stories far and wide. We thank the FENCE jurors, and the Photoville team, for helping us to do this.
