Episode 26: Felipe Dana

Photography From a War Zone: A Dispatch From Ukraine

“Photography is the last thing I think of when entering these war zones.’’

Entering 2023, award-winning Brazilian photojournalist Felipe Dana shares his experiences on location in Kyiv, Ukraine, where he has joined the Associated Press and dedicated himself solely to photojournalism. He started his career at 15 years old as an assistant photographer and later pursued a degree in photography while working on commercial assignments, contributing to various local and international news agencies. His work has received numerous awards, including the World Press’ ‘Photo of the Year.’ Felipe was also part of the AP team’s finalist for the Pulitzer in 2021. 

In this episode, Felipe shares the dangers of following military groups on the front lines, sharing the details of previous experiences in ‘hot zones.’ He touches upon his daily routine and the importance of security measurements. Together, Richard and Felipe discuss the reality of war and how Felipe safeguards his emotional well-being.
