Domestic Worker Wins Fellowship for Her Photography

"For the past 10 years, 27-year-old Xyza Cruz Bacani has been working as a domestic worker for a wealthy Chinese family in Hong Kong,"Michael Zhang reported Jan. 23 for petapixel.com. "On her days off, she brings her camera onto her city’s sidewalks and captures impressive street photos.

"Yesterday, Bacani's life took a dramatic turn: she was announced as a recipient of the 2015 Human Rights Fellowship by the Magnum Foundation, a prestigious scholarship that will give her the opportunity to study in an intensive, six-week-long program at New York University in NYC.

"The experience will equip her in creating 'effective visual stories with the aim of advancing Human Rights' in her home country.

"The photographer says she hopes to become a professional photojournalist and return to the Philippines for her future photography work — photos that she hopes will help change her home country for the better."
