“I am drawn to combining the sad with the beautiful,” says American photojournalist Andrea Bruce (@andreabruce). “When I went overseas to cover the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, I realized that community journalism is even more needed in conflict zones — in areas where you need to get one type of person to relate to another type of person. When people think of conflict photography, they don’t think of someone who has become a part of the community, who has invested in it as a person. But I think successful conflict photographers have done that. And that’s where my biggest strength is.”
Today in Amsterdam, the International Women’s Media Foundation (@theiwmf) is celebrating Andrea with the Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award, which honors a female photographer who demonstrates the same bravery in conflict as the late Anja Niedringhaus. “It’s a tremendous honor,” she says. “There aren’t too many women in conflict as photographers, and Anja was someone I really looked up to. She led with her heart.”
