BARRY HARLEY WINS PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

 

Jamaican photographer Barry Harley is one of 120 winners of the 61st annual Communications Arts magazine photography competition.

Harley’s winning images were shot in Lualaba, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo of Congolese women and girls who are accessing better lives with the help of Hear Congo.

The Hear Congo organization is dedicated to education, workforce development, and providing safety and security for women and children who have endured slavery conditions in artisanal mines in the Tenke region, Lualaba, Congo. Women and girls empowered by this non-profit have created a safe path forward with job training primarily in the fields of fashion, cuisine, and healthcare.

The photos show the young women dressed in the clothes they design and produce. They will be published in the July/August 2020 issue of Communication Arts, both in print and digital editions. More than 25,000 copies of the issue will be distributed worldwide.
