THE ROBERT CAPA GOLD MEDAL AWARD 2011 – André Liohn awarded


We are honoured to announce that André Liohn won the Robert Capa Gold Medal award for photo reporting requiring exceptional courage for his series: “Almost Dawn in Libya”.

Liohn’s harrowing and dramatic series of images taken in the besieged Libyan city of Misrata are truly in the spirit of Robert Capa’s combat photography. These searing images are a first rate example of close quarters combat photography obtained at great personal risk. Rarely do we see photos taken so deep in the fog of war, serving, as they do, to shine a bright light on the horrors and consequences of combat.

André Liohn received the award on April 25th, 2012 in New York City.
