Acclaimed photographer Alex Masi wins 2nd Prize in the Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA) photo essay award for his long-term photography project ‘Bhopal Second Disaster.’

Alex visited Bhopal nearly three decades after the 1984 gas leak which is the world’s worst industrial disaster. Masi photographed the community’s struggles with the fallout from the disaster, specifically water pollution, over a span of three years.

Our congratulations go to Alex.

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
