Robin Hammond wins Dr. Guislain “Breaking the Chains of Stigma” Award

Robin Hammond has won the $ 50,000 Dr. Guislain “Breaking the Chains of Stigma” Award with his work on people living with mental health problems in various African countries.

Robin has worked in a number of countries in crisis, encountering varying degrees of stigmatisation and discrimination against people with mental health issues. According to Siri Hustvedt, a jury member of the award, says that “through the power of photography, Hammond has raised crucial awareness of the challenges face by people with mental illness in countries where mental care is under-resourced or nonexistent.”
