When Chechen woman, Khazman Umarova, 34, was given a video camera by a British journalist outside the village of Samashki at the time of the massacre in Chechnya April 1995, she had never even held a camera before. But she carried it in under her jacket, past the Russian soldiers who were stopping journalists from entering the village, as she filmed the first evidence of the mass killings happening in Chechnya for the outside world to see. This act of bravery was seen as the starting point for other women photojournalists who would follow Umarova’s example later throughout the region.
