As every year, I went to the World Press Photo exhibition. This year, though, I didn’t go with deadra, but with B. and S. Nevertheless, you’ll get my favorites after the jump as usual.
I do think that there were more female photographers honored this year than in the previous years. I don’t have a statistic, but that’s my impression. If it’s true, it’s pretty damn cool and should be encouraged.
Let’s get started with the overall winner:
[Li Yang; that young woman tried to commit suicide, was grabbed and sustained no injuries.]
[Salil Bera; the leopard attacked his handler. The handler survived, the leopard didn’t.]
[Niclas Hammarström; Utøya]
[Donald Miralle, Jr.]
[Guillaume Herbaut; Femen is a Ukranian protest group that stages topless photos to point out issues like forced marriage or sex traffic]
[Donald Weber; inside a Ukranian interrogation room]
[Jenny E. Ross]
[Brent Stirton; a rhino and its bodyguards]
[Stephanie Sinclair; two husbands and their child brides]
