Voices of the Middle East: Noorderlicht in search of personal stories

Call for Submissions

Voices of the Middle East

The beginning of 2011 marks an impressive turnaround. First the people of Tunesia cried out for freedom in massive numbers, resulting in a unprecedented fast downfall and change of their government. Quickly thereafter, the people of Egypt did the same by the millions, with an outcome that is as yet uncertain. We see reports of starting protests in other countries in the region.

Despite continuous reports from press and media, the focus lies steadily on ‘the square’ in the case of Egypt and the immediate pictures of the uprising. Noorderlicht wonders what is happening in other cities, or a few streets further on? We are interested to see the response of local photographers and photographic artists and how they connect the events to their social situation. Are you a photographer actively working on this? Or do you know photographers that do so? Please contact Noorderlicht.
