a confused and sickly planet

The 2003 world press photo competition, something I hadn’t heard of until 20 minutes ago, has produced some of the most fascinating, beautiful and terrible pictures I’ve seen in a long time.

They are a year of the world painted primarily with pain. A portrait of a confused and sickly planet.

Some of them have the feeling of a classical painting, while others feel more like some kind of demented action film.

They are all good.
