I vincitori del World Press Photo 2017

 

Come scritto su fotografia.it, il World Press Photo ha subito una lieve flessione nella partecipazione..circa 2000 scatti in meno.

A vincere il World Press Photo quest’anno è Burhan Ozbilici con An “Assassination in Turkey”. In molti si ricorderanno quello che successe il 19 dicembre 2016:  durante una mostra d’arte a Ankara, l’ambasciatore russo in Turchia, Andrey Karlov, fu freddato dall’attentatore Mevlüt Mert Altintas. Burhan Ozbilici, dell’agenzia Associated Press, era sul posto. Ozbilici ha vinto anche la categoria Spot News (stories).

Mevlüt Mert Altintas, a 22-year-old off-duty police officer, assassinated the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov, at an art exhibition in Ankara, Turkey, on 19 December 2016. He wounded three other people before being killed by officers in a shootout.

Police operatives conduct an investigation as the body of Michael Araja (29), an alleged drug user, lays in front of a local convenience store after being gunned down in the street by unidentified men in the early hours in Manila, Philippines.

This type of murder, perpetrated by two people on a motorbike, is commonly referred to as a "riding-in-tandem" killing.

Rhino Wars
Nature, first prize stories

A black rhino bull is seen dead, poached for its horns less than 8 hours earlier at Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve, South Africa. It is suspected that the killers came from a local community approximately 5 kilometers away, entering the park illegally, shooting the rhino at a water hole with a high-powered, silenced hunting rifle. An autopsy and postmortem carried out by members of the KZN Ezemvelo ranger team later revealed that the large caliber bullet went straight through this rhino, causing massive tissue damage. It was noted that he did not die immediately, but ran a short distance, fell to his knees and a coup de grâce shot was administered to the head from close range.

Five-year-old Maha and her family fled from the village Hawija outside Mosul, Iraq, seven days ago. The fear of so-called Islamic State and the lack of food forced them to leave their home, her mother says. Now Maha lays on a dirty mattress in the overcrowded transit center in Debaga’s refugee camp. “I do not dream and I'm not afraid of anything anymore,” Maha says quietly while her mother's hand strokes her hair.
