Daniel Etter Featured in August’s Top 10 Photo Essays By TIME LightBox


Daniel Etter’s photo essay “Hands Across the Water” for Al Jazeera America provides an intimate portrait of a crew and ship trying to save migrants that are ignored by Europeans. In 2006, Etter won an Alexia Student Award of Excellence for his project “The Long Shadow of the Third Reich” which captured The March of the Living: a Jewish commemoration of the Holocaust to remind people of the atrocities of the Nazi regime.

“Hands Across Water” sheds light on the plight of migrants as they set sail to unknown futures and horizons, constantly fearing life and death.
