Noor was officially launched during the 19th Visa Pour l’Image festival in Perpignan, and is a collective of nine independent documentary photographers, pooling their resources to make impact on world views and opinions through photography.

Noor will promote, sell and exhibit the work of its founding member photographers:

Samantha Appleton
Jodi Bieber
Philip Blenkinsop
Pep Bonet
Jan Grarup
Stanley Greene
Yuri Kozyrev
Kadir van Lohuizen

Noor is the Arabic word for light...and before seeing the list of photographers, I hoped it would've been founded by some of the emerging and talented photographers of the Near and Middle East, however that's not the case.

Here's NOOR (Firefox works better)
