Zweedse fotograaf maakt World Press Photo

ANP – Amsterdam  – Een foto met daarop een groep geëmotioneerde mannen die de lichamen van twee dode kinderen dragen door de straten van Gaza Stad. Dat is de World Press Photo van het jaar 2012. 

De Zweedse fotograaf Paul Hansen van de krant Dagens Nyheter maakte de winnende plaat, bleek vrijdag in Amsterdam.

De dode kinderen werden op 20 november 2012 overgebracht naar een moskee voor crematie. Het lichaam van hun vader volgde erachter op een stretcher.

De 2 jaar oude Suhaib Hijazi en haar 3-jarige broer Muhammed kwamen om toen hun huis werd geraakt door een Israëlische aanval. Hun moeder belandde ernstig gewond op de intensive care. Hansen krijgt een bedrag van 10.000 euro voor de winnende foto.

De internationale jury reikte prijzen uit in negen categorieën aan 54 fotografen uit 32 landen. Onder hen ook een winnaar uit Nederland. Ananda van der Pluijm werd derde met een serie portretten in de categorie mensen.

De World Press Photo-wedstrijd vond voor de 56e keer plaats.
