2015 by Kontinent

with No Comments

2015 tested the world of photojournalism as truly dramatic events dominated the headlines. Many of these events forced us to re-examine the morals which guide us and photography has been at the forefront of this. Images were published across the media which the public and policy makers could not ignore.
As in previous years, Kontinent’s photographers have documented the leading stories, as well as bringing to light causes still in the shadows. We worked, and continue to work on several migration stories from Syria to Sweden and throughout all of Europe.
Kontinent’s photographers also recorded the chaos and horror that resulted from the terrorist attacks in Paris; they used drone footage to provide a unique perspective on the drought in California and were there to witness the heavy rains in Nepal.
Award-winning photographer, Anna Tärnhuvud, covered the 20 year remembrance of Srebrenica as well as the effects of Nicaragua’s strict abortion laws.
Jacob Zocherman has returned to Sweden after having spent around one and a half years documenting the tumultuous situation in South Sudan- see
one of his stories here.
As an agency we’re pleased to announce that we have four photographers whose work has been nominated for the the Swedish Picture of the Year Award 2016. Both the ceremony and the awards will be in March. Until then, here are some of the most compelling Kontinent images of 2015.
