I need to travel. Not just to NYC but to new places, new cultures to be absorbed in…away from the MEDCs. Unicef photo of the year award is one given to photographers who capture the personalities and living conditions of children around the world in an outstanding manner. Not only does the award highlight and reward a photographer’s ability to capture the children‘s situation beautifully. The real aim of the award is to help increase the awareness of children’s suffering. I know some of you may think ‘a photograph isn’t going to change their situation‘ but images have the unique ability to show us how they (the children) experience the world, images are way better than words to show us this. Check out some of this year’s winners and honourable mentions on the flipside.
