Hi, my name is Matthias Bruggmann.

A few years ago, I won an award (http://prixelysee.ch/en/), and thanks to it, I made a book.

It is called An Act of Unspeakable Violence / Un Acte d'une Violence Indicible. You can see what it looks like here: https://exb.fr/en/home/358-un-acte-d-une-violence-indicible-9782365111874.html.

People have written about it, and I have spoken about it (and the issues around it).

Here are some of the most recent instances of that:

In the past, I have done other things with and around photography, and won other awards. The take home is that, if you can, you should support the Dr Hawa Abdi foundation (https://www.dhaf.org), or, in Syria, the White Helmets (https://www.whitehelmets.org/en/).
