“Driven by a desire to reveal the turbulent history of The Lake Chad Basin in Africa, Bénédicte tells untold stories of the region and its people with empathy and compassion.“
Always guided by a clear sense of ethics, Bénédicte Kurzen (b. 1980, France) feels a sense of urgency to confront the troubling realities of our world. For the past thirteen years, the photojournalist has provided in-depth visual coverage of conflict and socio-economic changes in the African continent where she has been based since 2008. In 2012, Kurzen became a full member of NOOR Photography Agency, which seeks to contribute to a growing understanding of the world by producing independent visual reports that stimulate positive social change and impact views on issues of global concern.
