Medjugorje photos awarded in France
The fourth largest radio network in France awards 25 years old Pierre Roth with its photo prize for a black and white reportage series from Medjugorje and Mostar. At a time of rapid urban development, he has captured remains of rural Medjugorje, and focused on people’s devotion.
Medjugorje was brought to the attention of French radio listeners on Friday when the large news channel France Info awarded photographer Pierre Roth with its photo prize for his series “Life in Medjugorje?”
Captured outside the pilgrimage season, in February and March 2008, the black and white series shows scenes of local everyday life in Medjugorje, mixed with scenes of calm fervor among people in prayer on the mountains.
25 years Pierre Roth receives 3,000 Euro along with the prize.
