Edgar Martins has been awarded this year’s SONY World photographer of the Year Award for his series, Our War.
Edgar Martins writes, ‘In 2011, my friend the photojournalist Anton Hammerl travelled to Libya to cover the conflict between pro-regime and anti-Gaddafi forces. On 5 April he was abducted and killed by government militia. Frustrated by the lack of progress in the investigation to find his mortal remains, in 2022 I travelled to Libya. This previously unseen body of work is structured as a speculative portrait of Anton Hammerl, through the people involved in the conflict and others enacting their stories.’
