Eyes Wide Open - Photography by the winners of the Ian Parry Scholarship
It was a great tragedy when, at the young age of 24, Ian Parry lost his life covering the Romanian Revolution. His friends and family decided that such a great loss should be remembered with a positive initiative to support other young photographers, and the Ian Parry Scholarship was born.
Over the 15 years that the Scholarship has been in operation, the selected photographers have not only benefited directly from the award, but have become part of a remarkable family. Many previous winners have gone on to distinguish themselves in photojournalism as the best young photographers of a new generation.
