Winning Project:
The Al-Aqsa Martyr Brigades - The Balata Sentinels
Sarah Caron's "The Al-Aqsa Martyr Brigades - The Balata Sentinels" will highlight the martyrdom culture that drives the Palestinian Al-Aqsa Martyr Brigades and the way they portray themselves by the image of death. Caron will focus on both the daily life and fight of the 'martyr' and of the local artist who prepares their image for the death testimony.
Sarah Caron (born 1970 in Aix en Provence, France) took up photography after completing a degree in Spanish and South American literature and civilization.
