Zimbabwean-born Micha Serraf is the winner of WILPF’s Second International Photography Collaboration which invited photographers from around the world to respond to the theme ‘Men and Love in Times of War and Polarisation’.

Micha Serraf won for his series of images which he describes as “attempting to find the means and the methods of conjuring what Bell Hooks refers to as ‘feminist masculinity’. A masculinity that is abundantly concerned with reciprocal coexistence with the community in which it exists. A masculinity that is abundantly concerned with the wellbeing of women, other men, queers, children, the environment, the past and a sustainable future. A gentle future – together, where soft is strong.”

The winners of the photography collaboration, Men and Love in Times of War and Polarisation, were selected by an esteemed jury convened by award-winning National Geographic photographer and filmmaker Pete Muller. The jury was particularly impressed by Serraf’s powerful visual language and the unique way that he grappled with the theme of the collaboration.

Photographers Matthieu Paley, Cem Genco, Mouneb Taim and Slava Novikov were also recognized for their exceptional submissions.
