Telling a thousand words

Posted By Sunny On 5th October, 2005 @ 12:25 am In Media, The World | Comments Disabled

The World Press Photo foundation celebrates the 50th anniversary of its annual photographic competition this year, according to [1] the BBC, and it shows some of the previous award-winning photographs.

Perhaps not surprisingly, many of the pictures relate to war and personal grief. Below shows 13-year-old Omayra Sanchez trapped in debris caused by a mudslide following the eruption of a volcano in Colombia in 1985.

Readers might also remember the infamous picture taken after the [3] Bhopal chemical disaster of 1984.

The following won the Indian Picture of the Year award in 2004. Brother informs relatives of sister’s suicide.

Not all photos are caught naturally. Though those are the ones that are captivating. Good work.
