World Press Photo

Some time ago, I was having a walk in the harbour and noticed big advertisements about the World Press Photo exhibition. Since the place was quite in the neighbourhood, I paid it a visit couple of days ago. It was really worth it, since the stories behind those shots are often quite touching. You can see all the winning photos in the World Press Photo website, but if the exhibition is coming to a city near you, I recommend to pay it a visit!

It is amazing how much power a single picture can hold. E.g. this one made by Péter Lakatos, where a man commits suicide by jumping from a bridge turret after setting himself to fire. Stupefying.
