POYi awards via panam with special jury recognition

Kadir van Lohuizen has received the special jury recognition by POYi for Via Panam, a multimedia project made into an App for the iPad.

Kadir investigated contemporary migration in the Americas, a phenomenon which is as old as humanity but is increasingly portrayed as a new threat to the Western world.

Kadir traveled from Chile to Alaska, covering 15 countries and 28,000 kilometers along the Pan-American highway. He left Tierra del Fuego in southern Chile in March 2011 and reached Deadhorse in northern Alaska in March 2012.

Via Panam reflects a diverse range of migration experiences both historic and contemporary in which Kadir visualized the stories of the communities, regions and societies he encountered.

Via PanAm is a co-production with Paradox.
