Yen Duong is an award-winning Vietnamese photojournalist whose courageous work focuses on untold human stories. Her work has highlighted human trafficking, climate change and life in marginalised communities.
She has been published in Reuters, Bloomberg, the Guardian, the New York Times, and other international news outlets and was the winner of One World Media’s New Voice Award in 2019.
"For so long, we have seen the world through a white man’s lens and photojournalism has focused too much on wars, conflicts, hostility and binary oppositions," she says. "The times are changing."
"From the beginning of the Women by Women project, I had the power to decide and direct everything throughout the creative process which I highly appreciated.
"It may sound like an obvious thing, but for me it means trust and respect for my work."
Women by Women is celebrating the inspiring stories of women in the countries we work in – and the female photographers capturing those stories from behind the lens.
