A special issue of PRIVATE dedicated to Panos Pictures, a London-based independent photo agency representing photojournalists worldwide.
Dieter Telemans (www.dietertelemans.com), “I was born in Bujumbura in 1971, and lived in Burundi, where my parents worked for the Belgian foreign ministry, until I was 18. I grew up in a closed white boy’s environment, never questioning Burundi’s turbulent politics or the difficult life of its population. On moving ‘home’ to Belgium, the only way I could enjoy the greyness was by making photographs of it. I worked as a photographer for the newspaper De Morgen for seven years. Returning to Africa to work, I was confronted with a totally different side of the continent, in which poverty and AIDS were rife.”
