World Press Photo - 2004
Some of the most fantastic photos of the year as acknowledged by the renowned World Press Photo Contest can be seen at Winner's Gallery 2005. These images are nothing short of spectacular, and without a doubt make me realise the power of one of my favourite forms of art: photography.
The winning image:
Arko Datta, India, Reuters. Woman mourns relative killed in tsunami, Cuddalore, India, Tamil Nadu, 28 December
My personal favourites:
Shoeb Faruquee, Bangladesh, Drik Picture Library. Patient at mental hospital, Bangladesh
Francesco Zizola, Italy. Former girl soldier, Uganda
Marcello Bonfanti, Italy. Cuban drag queens
