Ethiopian photographer Aida Muluneh has been named the recipient of the 2010 CRAF's International Award of Photography at a ceremony in Italy. The prize committee said the accolade is a recognition of Aida's continued efforts to establish a photography educational-institution in her native country. "In the year that CRAF has dedicated to Africa with the exhibit 'Glimpses of Africa', the International Award of Photography awarded to this young and very accomplished photographer -- who is what's more socially committed to the creation of a school of photography dedicated to young people, in Addis Abeba -- is also intended to be in recognition of all of the young and emerging African photographers," the group said. In the following interview with Tadias.com, Aida talks about photography, working in Ethiopia, and her new book entitled Ethiopia: Past/Forward. We note that photos displayed during her discussion of the book are not necessarily included in the book. The film clips and music, which accompany her interview, are part of the artist's recent documentary also entitled Ethiopia: Past/Forward.
