Collection of World Press Photo Winners From 1955-2011
Posted by Alex Wise on February 26, 2012
I saw this collection of World Press Photo Winners From 1955-2011 pop up in my feed earlier this morning and had to share it with you all. Sit down with a coffee and treat yourself to this amazing but powerful collection of images that have since gone on to become iconic photographs that help define certain periods.
I feel slightly uncomfortable picking a favourite due to the nature of the images but a stand out for me will always be the photograph captured from 1994 by James Nachtwey. I first came across James Nachtwey’s work much before I picked up a camera in around 2004 through the documentary War Photographer. A must watch for any photographer as it documents the dangerous job that is being a photographer during war times.
Head over to Buzzfeed to view the rest of the images in this powerful collection.
