{"id":"30","title":"Lana Slezic","description":"Born to Croatian parents in Canada, Lana Slezic graduated from the University of Western Ontario and then turned down acceptance to the Emily Carr School of Art and Design in Vancouver to study photojournalism at Loyalist College in Ontario. She graduated in 2000 and worked for Canada\u2019s largest daily newspapers for the next two years.\r\n
\r\n
Unsatisfied with the superficial nature of newspaper work, she decided to freelance and focus on more long term projects. She traveled to Bosnia to cover landmine victims and photographed Mennonites in her native Canada. She lived in Afghanistan for two years documenting the daily struggles of Afghan women which will culminate in her first photography book Forsaken, to be published in the Fall of 2007. Lana is also writing a book that will document the intimate time she spent with Afghan women from 2004-2006. \r\n
\r\n
For her work in Afghanistan, Lana has won several awards including the World Press Joop Swart Masterclass in the Netherlands, an International Photography Award in the U.S. and the Luis Valtuena Award for Humanitarian Photography in Spain. She has been published in magazines all over Europe and North America. \r\n
\r\n
For the last six years, Lana has also been photographing the town of Dubrovnik - her mother\u2019s birthplace and the town she spent her childhood summers in.\r\n
