World Press Photo 2011Sunday, 16. October 2011
As every year, deadra and me headed to the World Press Photo exhibition. The photos were very impressive again and I had to fight tears a couple of times. [Sometimes I really am too touchy. Or to put a positive spin on it: boy, am I empathic.] While that is one of the reasons I don’t really follow the news regularly, it’s a good thing that at least this exhibition catches me up on important things once a year.
It seemed that there were less nature photos this year than usual, but that’s just a minor sidenote – generally the photos were brilliant.
After the jump, find my favorites.
I don’t think that the series by Andrew McConnell was featured – or it was hidden somewhere really good – which is a shame, because those photos are great.
