BIJANIBIHA — GIANLUCA PANELLA
in cooperation with the Romano Cagnoni Foundation and AFIP International.
The winner of the Romano Cagnoni Photolux Award 2019 is Gianluca Panella with the project Bijanibiha.
Bijanibiha is a long term project started in 2012 on women’s Palestinian resistance into the Gaza Strip. Bijanibiha in Arabic means “by her side”. This is a work by a male photojournalist documenting the conditions of the women into the Gaza Strip in times of change in the political game of the parties in the Palestinian Israeli matter. A resistance that from the front line has pervaded into the social fabric and that is now part of the everyday life, to fight back social annihilation and protect their dignity.
