Sudan’s first photo agency is now online. Photo Sudan Network launched its official website on 15 April 2008. UNESCO's support and financing for this unique project has brought together a group of highly talented independent photographers dealing with documentary, corporate, reportage, journalism, fine art and educational subjects.
The site features the photos of three Sudanese photographers: Ali Mohammed Osman, Mohammed Nour-elDin and Sidi Moctar who, through their pictures, tell some of the many stories that unfold in Sudan each day. Now that their work is available online, the world can see these stories with relative ease.

UNESCO's support for Photo Sudan Network was aimed at promoting the diversity of Sudan and at establishing a new documentary vision of its resources through photography, which is mainly focused on social issues, current affairs, customs and traditions. The Network promotes intercultural dialogue to maintain cultural vitality within Sudan and to reach new audiences outside the country. Photo Sudan Network provides a venue for supporting these photographers by making their work available to a global market.

A selection of photos will be shown at UNESCO Headquarters in November 2008 as part of a month long focus on photography throughout Paris.
