Supported by UNESCO
PhotoSudan Network launched its official website on 15 April 2008.
UNESCO’s support and financing for this unique project has brought together a group of highly talented independent photographers dealing with all aspects of daily life.
The site features the photos of three Sudanese photographers: M. Ali Mohamed Osman, M. Mohammed Noureldine and M. Sidi Moctar who, through their pictures, tell some of the many and amazing stories that unfold in Sudan each day.
Now that their work is available online, the world can see these stories with rela- tive ease. UNESCO’s support for Photo Sudan Network was aimed at promoting the diversity of Sudan and at establishing a new documentary vision of its resources through photography, which is mainly focused on current affairs, social issues, customs and traditions.
The Network promotes intercultural dialogue to maintain cultural vitality within Sudan and to reach new audiences outside the country. PhotoSudan Network provides a venue for supporting these photogra- phers by making their work available to a global market. Their work covers journalism, documentary, corporate, fine art and educational subjects.
The idea for the photo agency was born in 2006 in Khartoum under the initiative of Mr Gadalla Gubara, one of the pioneers of African photography and cinema who recently passed away, in August 2008, M. Ali Mohammed Osman, M. Mohammed Noureldine, M. Sidi Moctar, and the French project manager Mrs Frederique Cifuentes. She was also curating this exhibition.
