El premio Visa d鈥檕r News ha sido concedido este a帽o a Aris Messinis, por su trabajo dedicado a la llegada de los migrantes a las playas de la isla de Lesbos, durante la clausura en Perpi帽谩n de la 28陋 edici贸n del Festival Internacional de Fotoperiodismo “visa pour l鈥檌mage”.

En su trabajo, los refugiados atraviesan el mar Egeo, a veces con peligro para su vida, en barcos improvisados. Los montones de chalecos salvavidas dan testimonio del continuo flujo de migrantes que llegan a las puertas de Europa con la esperanza de encontrar all铆 una vida mejor.

Lo que m谩s me choca de esta cobertura es pensar que no estamos en zona de guerra. Que trabajamos en zona de paz. Pero las emociones que se pasan por mi objetivo son dignas de una escena de guerra“, ha precisado Aris Messinis, a帽adiendo: “Es posible que algo cambie si continuamos mostrando estas im谩genes. Es mi esperanza”.

Los reportajes de Aris Messinis en Libia y Egipto le valieron numerosos premios reconocidos, en especial en Fotoweek 2011, Days Japan 2012, el premio de la Asociaci贸n de Fot贸grafos de la Prensa Norteamericana聽(NPPA en siglas inglesas), y el premio Bayeux-Calvados de Corresponsales de Guerra por su tema dedicado a la batalla de Sirte de octubre de 2011 en Libia.

Nuestro fot贸grafo Aris Messinis ha realizado un trabajo destacable sobre los migrantes con esta serie fuerte, emotiva e inc贸moda. Este Visa d鈥橭r viene tambi茅n a recompensar al conjunto de los equipos de AFP que dan cuenta por toda Europa y Oriente Medio de la crisis de los migrantes禄, ha declarado Emmanuel Hoog, Presidente-Director General de AFP.

Fot贸grafo autodidacta griego nacido en 1977, Aris Messinis empez贸 a colaborar con Associated Press en 1997 como free lance tras haber terminado los estudios secundarios y su servicio militar. En 2003, se incorpor贸 a Agence France-Presse y se convirti贸, en 2006, en responsable de Fotograf铆a en Grecia.

Dotada de una red de 500 fot贸grafos habitualmente galardonados con los m谩s prestigiosos premios internacionales, AFP, que difunde m谩s de 3.000 fotograf铆as diarias, dispone de experiencia y cobertura fotogr谩fica reconocidas. El banco de im谩genes de AFP cuenta con m谩s de 50 agencias asociadas que enriquecen la oferta de unas 39 millones de im谩genes. Creado en 1985, el servicio fotogr谩fico internacional ha multiplicado por siete su producci贸n desde 2000.

A continuaci贸n, el trabajo por el que Aris Messinis recibi贸 su premio.
