KARL MANCINI – WINNER PHOTON GRANT 2019
Ni una menos is a longterm project about gender violence and women’s movements fight for rights.
Starting from Argentina, I’m documenting this plague in countries heavily affected by this plague through the stories of women who have suffered violence, their relatives and the struggle of social movements born to fight violence and protect the victims. In Argentina currently a woman is killed every 28 hours. Here, in 2015,it was created the feminist collective ‘Ni una menos’, a protest movement that is fighting against gender violence on many different aspects spreading to other Latin American countries, recently in Europe and USA. The phenomenon of gender violence is so massive as to be transversal: from childhood to adulthood, no social class and no conditions is excluded. Particularly serious is the in the many slums of the cities where criminality is high and the youngster are in danger. My goal is to continue documenting this topic in the world.The common line that sadly connect many countries is violence in all its aspects (domestic, psychological, physical, economic). I believe that it’s very important to give visibility and voice to victims who doesn’t have it, inspiring more of them to come forward to tell their stories and bring pressure on the governments.
