World Press Photo 2010

I’m always proud of the fact that World Press Photo is a Dutch institute located in Amsterdam. Today they have announced the World Press Photo 2010 winners, you can view the amazing, winning images in the gallery here. The World Press Photo of The Year is of an 18 year old Afghan girl who was disfigured as punishment, shot by photographer Jodi Bieber. This shot comes out of the category ‘Portraits’ but easily could have come from the category ‘Spot News’, which impacted me the most.

Three of my favourites are…

Riccardo Venturi, Italy, Contrasto. Old Iron Market burns, Port-au-Prince, Haiti,
