Stephan Vanfleteren Wins World Press Photo Award

Going to Africa with Mercy Ships means meeting and working alongside some really cool and talented people. People like Stephan Vanfleteren

The Belgian photographer visited the Africa Mercy twice in Conakry to photograph Mercy Ships patients. (You might remember when I shared photographs after his first visit…) Well, Stephan received the World Press Photo Award for 1st Place in the Staged Portraits category at a gala in Holland last month. Amazing!

Stephan’s photos are now on tour, visit to see if the World Press Photo Exhibition is coming to your city! (Note: no, it’s not coming to Texas. Sad.)

  1. Catherine ~ I love your blog and read every entry. I did check to see why you werent getting our newsletters. Discovered that you unsubscribed when you left Houston so I cant go into the system and subscribe you again, you have to do it.

    Go to our website and to the right youll see a choice to subscribe. Maxs July writing classes will be the weekend of July 27 & 28. He begins a 10 day online Bootcamp on July 1st. That may be a good thing for you to do also. Go to his site for info on that

    Much love ~ Rosa
