"I try to tell what's happening, but I try to be considerate, and also make poetic and beautiful images. It's important to be sensitive, and acknowledge the complexity of what's going on." That's how Italian photographer Lorenzo Tugnoli of the Contrasto agency recently described his work to the British Journal of Photography.
A long-term project focused on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen just earned him the 2019 World Press Photo award for General News, Stories.
Tugnoli recounted the stories behind five of his most powerful images from Yemen for this OneShot: Cinq video production.
