?lvaro Laiz – winner of an honorary mention at the 4th edition of the AnthropoGraphia Award
Mongolia is a sovereign nation and the least densely populated country in the world, with fewer than two inhabitants per square kilometre. Homosexuality is still taboo there. The weight of tradition and the years under Soviet domination, a time during which homosexuals were sent to the gulag, constitute a great burden for gays, lesbians, and transsexuals, who continue to be repressed, rejected, and victimized.

The name AnthropoGraphia is a combination of the Greek words ?anthropo” and ?graphia”, which literally means ?human-being – writing?. The essence of these terms reveals AnthropoGraphia?s mission: to write human stories, using photography as the medium.
AnthropoGraphia is committed to the denunciation of human rights abuses through high-quality visual storytelling.
We recognize the power of advocacy visual storytelling in raising awareness and reject distinctions between photojournalism and the arts, in order to bring together a variety of approaches to the long-term, in-depth photographic essay that focuses on human rights.
Our aim is to raise general awareness of issues that are often marginalized by the mainstream media. We also strive to encourage non-western and emerging photographers by promoting them alongside the world?s most celebrated photographers.
