Photo contest: ZEF research in the picture

Two stranded ships in a desert-like landscape formed a scene which made

the biggest impression on the jury and visitors for ZEF's photo

exhibition. The exhibition, which was organized on the occasion of ZEF's

10 year anniversary, consisted of pictures handed in to ZEF's first

photo competition covering ZEF's research activities. The winning

photographer is Conrad Schetter, ZEF senior researcher and coordinator

of ZEF's project on 'Local governance and statehood in the Amu Darya

Region'. "With these photos we can show another dimension of our

research", says Schetter, "and I am glad that people took some time to

have a look at 'real life' scenes of the environments we work in".
