Abir Abdullah, an award-winning photographer and friend from Bangladesh and Harish Tyagi, a budding photojournalist based in Delhi, India have won awards at the annual UNICEF Photo Of the Year 2004 competition.
Abir won second place for a gruesome image of rescue workers pulling the limp body of a six-year old child after a six-storey, 100-year old building collapsed at midnight on June, 9 2004 in Dhaka.
Harish Tyagi’s image of a child navigating his way in a garbage dump received an honorable mention.
What Abir and Harish have in common (other than working in South Asia) is that they are both deeply committed to documenting children and the environment they live in.
