The 18th World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass is being held this week in Amsterdam. One of the 12 participants, VII Photo’s Anastasia Taylor-Lind, spoke exclusively to CPN on film about her Nagorno-Karabakh ‘respect’-theme project, ‘The National Womb’.

Artak Petrosyan and his bride Armine Baghdasaryan sit at the main table during the evening reception in Khtsaberd village hall. The young couple will receive a wedding payment of around €575 as part of the government's ‘Birth Encouragement Program’. Khtsaberd village, Hadrut Region, Nagorno-Karabakh, 16 July 2011.

In spring 2011, an international committee surveyed portfolios submitted by over 175 pre-selected nominees and selected the 12 young photographers to participate in this year's Masterclass: Eunice Adorno (Mexico), Antonio Bolfo (USA), Kitra Cahana (Canada), Alinka Echeverria (Mexico/UK), Alessandro Imbriaco (Italy), Jakub Kaminski (Poland), Sebastian Liste Vicario (Spain), Leo Maguire (UK), Ivor Prickett (Ireland), Mohammed Salem (Palestinian Territories), Dimitri Stefanov (Bulgaria) and Anastasia Taylor-Lind (Sweden/UK).

Each participant had to prepare a project based on this year’s theme, Respect. Their projects then form the basis of their discussions in the Masterclass with six leading photography professionals: Christopher Anderson (Canada, photographer at Magnum), Jodi Bieber (South Africa, photographer at Institute), Tony Chambers (UK, editor in chief at Wallpaper* magazine), Dewi Lewis (UK, founder and publisher of Dewi Lewis Publishing), Mariko Takeuchi (Japan, independent curator and photography critic) and Francesco Zizola (Italy, photographer at Noor).

Anastasia Taylor-Lind, winner of a FNAC grant announced at this year’s Visa pour l’Image festival, told CPN that she was delighted to be part of the Masterclass. Commenting on her project she said: “The theme of respect is intrinsically link to photography because to be a photojournalist without having a huge amount of respect for the people you photograph, your work ends up meaningless and nothing.”
