Magnum nominee Sim Chi Yin’s installation Notes To Granddad, 2018, is an extract from her family history project. The work, consisting of six photographic prints, will be showcased at Photoville in New York, from the 13 September 2018.

The series of images have been selected as part of a group exhibition, A Way Home, which brings to light the ways in which communities across the globe define ‘home’. Through a compassionate and telling lens, these photojournalists included will examine the effects that migration, conflict, political strife and humanitarian crises inflict on individuals’ concepts of home.

These photographers—all Chris Hondros Fund grantees—demonstrate a distinct ability to connect with communities and bring complex issues into the public eye to raise awareness and foster understanding. Chi Yin won the Chris Hondros Award in 2018.

The Chris Hondros Fund & Getty Images Award celebrates the work of two-time Pulitzer Prize Finalist and photojournalist Chris Hondros, who was killed April 20, 2011, on assignment in Misurata, Libya. As a photographer working in the world’s most difficult and dangerous places, Hondros strived to humanize world events in hopes of provoking thought.
