"A Ritual of Exile: Blood Speaks" investigates the causes and the consequences of normalized violence against women in Nepal. Perpetrated under the guise of Hindu tradition, the root cause of this violence is the belief in the impurity of a women’s menstrual blood. Hidden, under-reported and unresolved, these women are untouchable and, as a result, this violence takes the form of ‘exiles,” a way to keep menstruation shrouded in mystery and taboo, a weapon to shame women into subservience. In a world that is ravaged by war, the media is often full of images of those affected by conflict but, for many, the conflict begins at home.
" This multidisciplinary project, combining still photography, virtual reality films and, now, a book, is designed to reach multiple audiences across different platforms, print, virtual and physical installations. I want to turn my audience into activists and crack open the veil of silence and shame around women whose lives are shattered by such gender based violence.” Poulomi Basu
The book "A Ritual of Exile: Blood Speaks" will reveal how the chaupadi ritual disrupts the lives of girls, exposes them to recurring danger and imposes unjust restrictions on women throughout their lives.
The hardcover book will contain approximately 60 images and associated texts. It will be released in October, at the 2017 FotoEvidence Book Award Exhibit in New York.

For five years he witnessed and photographed the causes and consequences of a mass exodus that has now seen over seven and a half million Syrians flee their homes, making the current displacement of people the largest refugee migration since the Second World War.

This year, the FotoEvidence Book Award brought projects from around the world documenting assaults on human dignity. There is no shortage of people living under conditions of great injustice but the work submitted for the 2015 FotoEvidence Book Award shows that dedicated photographers everywhere are working to bring this to light and inspire change.
As the world media was focusing on more high profile conflicts, the Central African Republic became deadly and hateful.Thousands were killed and hundreds of thousands fled the country but the international media largely ignored it. Marcus Bleasdale, winner of the 2015 FotoEvidence Book Award reported next to the violence on a daily basis for many months between October 2013 and February 2015.
