Massimo Berruti, The Dusty Path
Recipient of the 2012 W. Eugene Smith Fellowship
Massimo Berruti has spent years working in and interpreting the challenging and complex world of Pakistan. With a population of 190 million people, a number of distinct languages and dialects, elaborate cultural variations, and an ongoing external and internal struggle between extremists, deeply conservative elements in society, moderates, and the military, Massimo’s photographs are powerful documents that illuminate the nuance and intrigue that perpetually manifest and animate this vast and little understood part of the world.
The Dusty Path was awarded the 2012 W. Eugene Smith Fellowship, announced yesterday. The 2012 W. Eugene Smith Grant for Humanistic Photography was awarded to Peter Van Agtmael, for Disco Night September 11.
