Haviv and Knight will hold a workshop for photographers from June 16 to 22, in Sarajevo, where these two world experts will share their experience from the world of photography with their peers.

Ron Haviv and Gary Knight met in BiH for the first time in the early 1990’s, where they photographed the horrors of the war in BiH. They have been close friends ever since. A few years later, they established the Agency VII, which is engaged in documenting  conflicts and raising awareness of the issues related to human rights from all around the world. Only Haviv covered more than 25 wars and worked in more than one hundred countries during the last three decades.

Price of the workshop in Sarajevo is 3,000 USD. The Agency VII offered a limited number of scholarships for photojournalists from BiH, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia. The condition for getting this scholarship was to send 20 photos. Haviv and Knight decided that photos of young Durgut deserve the scholarship.

Armin Durgut was born on March 28, 1995, in Zenica. He currently cooperates with several foreign agencies. His works were published in Forbes, NY Post, Wall Street Journal, The Sun, The Sunday Times, Daily Mail, National Geographic and many others…
