World Press Photo Winners 2013

Here’s a link to see the entire collection of winning images from the 56th World Press Photo Contest.

WARNING: The world being what it is, some of the pictures are very graphic and tough to view. However, they are superb photography and very brave and present photojournalism.

Actually, so many of the photos are so startling that I had worried about the credentials of “World Press Photo” but am reassured by their “About” statement. They are a long-standing and respectable foundation. The value of these pictures is summed up in World Press Photo’s statement: “We believe in the power of visual journalism to inspire and shape us.”
