Putin by Platon

The World Press Photo 2008 World Tour stopped by Moscow this month.

 

200 photos were on display from the various categories such as spot news, portraits, general news, sports action, etc.

 

I couldn't help to notice that most of the winning shots under the news categories (and even portraiture) were depiction of war, death, suffering.

 

Really makes us think the state of the world we are currently living in.
