Egyptian Photojournalist Faces Death Penalty
Mahmoud Abu Zeid, alias Shawkan, is an Egyptian photojournalist who was apprehended on August 14th, 2013, while covering the anti-government demonstration in Cairo. He was assigned by Demotix–a British photo agency–to report on the clashes between the army, and the supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi, which took place in Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya Square. Zeid, along with more than 700 people, has been charged with murder, attempted murder, and membership with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian prosecutors have appealed for ‘maximum penalty’, that is death by hanging for all the accused. He was held without any trial or charges till March 2016. The UN Working Group considers his imprisonment as arbitrary, and they have also demanded for his immediate release.

Photojournalist Max Desfor Dies at 104
Max Desfor, a former Associated Press (AP) photographer, the ex-photo editor of US News & World Report, passed away on 19 February in Maryland, USA, due to complications from a stroke. He was 104 years old. Desfor began his career as a messenger and darkroom assistant with AP, in 1933. In June 1950, he volunteered to report on the Korean War, when the North invaded the South. He was awarded the Pulitzer prize for his photograph that showed of hundreds of Korean war refugees, crossing the destroyed Taedong river bridge, as they looked for security from Chinese troops (1950). Later, during World War II, in August 1945, he photographed the bomber Enola Gay, after the B-29 arrived in Tinian. In an Instagram post following his death, fellow photojournalist David Hume Kennerly, had this to say about Desfor... “Max was a photographer’s photographer: Brave. Intrepid. A brilliant newsman. He had a great run.”
World’s Last Male Northern White Rhino Dies
Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhino, died at OI Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya on 19th of March. He was 45 years old (97 in human equivalent age). A team of veterinarians decided to euthanise him due to his agerelated problems and several infections. He is survived by two female rhinos: his daughter Najin, aged 28, and granddaughter Fatu, aged 17. White rhinos comprise of two subspecies: the northern white rhinos, which are nearly extinct and the southern white rhino. During the 1970s and 1980s, the poaching crisis largely destroyed the northern white rhinos in Uganda, Central African Republic, Sudan and Chad. The poaching crisis was the result of the growing demand for rhino horn in traditional Chinese medicine to cure various ailments and to use them as dagger handles in Yemen. The remaining wild population of last few rhinos were killed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the beginning of 2000s, and by 2008, World Wide Fund, the global environment campaign considered the northern white rhinos extinct. To save the species from complete extinction, researchers have pinned their hopes on in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). They intend to use Sudan’s genetic material, and the eggs of the last female rhinos to preserve the subspecies. However, IVF has never been attempted with rhinos before. Better Photography magazine and Panasonic India conducted wildlife masterclasses for winners of Wildlife India Photography Awards, and twenty other participants from 25 June-1 July 2017, in Kenya. During this period, the winners and participants were able to meet Sudan in OI Pejeta Conservancy. A video was also shot featuring Sudan, which stressed on wildlife conservation. The film is title Sudan - Last Male Standing, and is available on Youtube. Having known the team that looked after Sudan so carefully, we offer our condolences from India. “We had the singular honour, to meet and touch the very last living male northern white rhinoceros on the planet. We are the very last generation to see this truly magnificent sub-species alive. We could not help feeling a sense of shame that humans killed them off with poaching, just as we do with so many other species. By being bystanders, our responsibility in all this does not diminish,” said Madhavan Pillai, Editor of Better Photography magazine.
