Hard Work in Hong Kong
This photo, titled Candy Cigarette, not just displays something, it
tells a story. It is both emotional and beautiful. This is what the
originality of black-and-white-photography is all about.
Tibetans believe, once in their life, a pilgrimage to Lhasa is of
exalted purpose and moral significance. Therefore, we see people like
this, especially in spring and autumn, on their journey of faith,
sometimes thousands of miles long, kowtowing every few steps.

Iguazu falls in Brazil
“On my second day visiting the astounding Iguazu falls on the Brazilian
side I was forced to change to my telephoto lens as my wide angle had
been damaged by the water vapour. In had rained solid for 10 days prior
to my arrival and so the falls were at their most spectacular. Standing
on the elevated viewing platform I was able to shoot this school group
who stood transfixed, emphasizing the incredible size of the falls.”

Child Labor. Bangladesh
Child labor is not a new issue in Bangladesh as children here remain
one of the most vulnerable groups living under threats of hunger,
illiteracy, displacement, exploitation, trafficking, physical and
mental abuse. Although the issue of child labor has always been
discussed, there is hardly any remarkable progress even in terms of
mitigation. 17.5 percent of children aged 5-15 are engaged in economic
activities. Many of these children are engaged in various hazardous
occupations in factories.

Starving Boy and Missionary
Wells felt indignant that the same publication that sat on his picture
for five months without publishing it, while people were dying, entered
it into a competition. He was embarrassed to win as he never entered
the competition himself, and was against winning prizes with pictures
of people starving to death. (World Press Photo of the Year: 1980 Mike
Wells, United Kingdom. Karamoja district, Uganda, April 1980).
And of course the afghan girl, picture shot by National Geographic
photographer Steve McCurry. Sharbat Gula was one of the students in an
informal school within the refugee camp; McCurry, rarely given the
opportunity to photograph Afghan women, seized the opportunity and
captured her image. She was approximately 12 years old at the time. She
made it on the cover of National Geographic next year, and her identity
was discovered in 1992.
