World Press Photo

May 31rst at the Azzedine Alaïa gallery in Paris… the Opening of the 55th World Press Photo Competition

May 31rst at the Azzedine Alaïa gallery in Paris… the Opening of the 55th World Press Photo Competition, surely the most prestigious event in photojournalism. Some 5000 photographers from 24 countries submitted more than 100 000 photos. The winner? A photograph of a mother holding her injured child. It was a day of repression; of bombings, of sniper shootings in Yemen. The protesters were hiding in a Mosque turned country hospital. This picture is not only spectacular, it’s universal. The jury was keen to honor the Arab uprising through a different lense: Tenderness. We managed to catch up with the Spanish artist, Samuel Aranda, between two flights. Photojournalism is the art of telling a story with a picture. Vincent Boisot was awarded the second place in the Arts and Entertainment category for his images of the Dakar Fashion Week. One of the hardest things for a photographer is finding a place to share their work. Guillaume Herbaut is no stranger to this hardship. After meeting with Tchernobyl and Mexican drug cartel victims, he set his sight on Ukrainian feminists. Guillaume Herbaut won the second prize in the Portraits category with his photo entitled Activists. Thanks to the World Press Photo touring program, the exhibit will be shown in more than 45 countries.
