Budapest International Foto Awards
Yunita Mabel wins Bronze in Budapest
Fresh off winning the Portrait award for Shoot The Frame and appearing at the Indian Photography Festival, this image of Yunita Mabel has been awarded Bronze at the Budapest International Foto Awards. The strong portrait which has echoes of the Mona Lisa was taken in Anemoigi village in West Papua, Indonesia, and will be on display in Hungary in 2023. Like other Dani women, Yunita plays the traditional role expected of females in the tribe - cooking, cleaning, and looking after the children - and lives separately from the men in the village.
