At last, a good news story...

Jeremy Snell‘s Boys of Volta series, Jurors Pick:
“We are well used to stereotypical images of Africa as a deprived or exotic continent, but the approach here is different. While the photographs are seemingly beautiful and exotic, the mood of solitude and loneliness is overwhelming. The photographs appear richly cinematic while at the same time reminding us that for some, there is no happy ending.”
