Perpignan, France – 5 September, 2015: Reportage by Getty Images’ photojournalist Daniel Berehulak has won the prestigious Visa d’Or Features Award at Visa Pour l’Image, the international festival of photojournalism held annually in Perpignan, France.
The award-winning Australian photojournalist has been recognised for his ground-breaking body of work covering the Ebola epidemic for The New York Times, which was captured over a period of 14 weeks. Daniel spent time in rural and urban areas of West Africa and his imagery documents the difficult, heart-breaking work carried out by aid workers and the local communities.
