The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) has revealed a newly selected group of emerging photographers for the 10th cycle of its Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP) mentorship scheme, selected by an independent jury for their abilities to capture a wide array of personal, social and political struggles.

In partnership with the Prince Claus Fund and Magnum Foundation, the ADPP provides comprehensive mentorship to the region’s most promising upcoming talent, nurturing them to allow their creativity to flourish.
