World Press Photo 09

Saw this exhibition of the best photos submitted by World Press photographers at the Brisbane Powerhouse. This stark image is of a policeman entering a derelict house in New Orleans. Many of the photos were breathtaking due to the bravery of the photographer or their sensitivity to the subject. They put themselves into dangerous situations and many were committed to raising our awareness of the plight of the suffering. They were not exploitative - perhaps that is why they were chosen. A great exhibition.
