We’ve mentioned a number of times the unique global flavour that The ONE-SHOT Project has taken on. A mulit-national team has developed to work with northern Iraqi kids. But one element is absolutely essential for the long-term success of ONE-SHOT: partnering with local Iraqi photographers. We need local photographers who understand local culture and will be able to mentor young photographers. You might be able to understand then why we are so excited to welcome Julie Adnan to the ONE-SHOT team.

Julie is an accomplished photographer, fluent in Kurdish, Arabic and English. Her work has been exhibited around the world. You can see some of her work here at her Lightstalkers’ account.

“Adnan, from Kirkuk in Iraq, is a 25 year old freelance photographer, and currently a student at the art academy of Sulemanyah University in Iraq. Adnan has worked for a number of agencies newspapers and websites including The New York Times, Reuters, National Geographic, Al-Sharql Awsat, The Washington Post, Jordan Times, Taw photography magazine, Kakh magazine, Kurdistani New, Aso newspaper, Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR), Driknews agency, World News Network, BBC World Website, IO Donna magazine of Italy and L’Express of France.”
