“En la fotografía hay una realidad tan sutil que llega a ser más real que la realidad”.
–Alfred Stieglitz

Siempre he sido una fiel creyente de que las historias pueden contarse de diferentes maneras, y una de ellas es la fotografía, con la cual podemos revivir aquel momento plasmado, sentir la esencia y dejar que los sentimientos que transmite nos trasladen.

Uno de los lugares en los cuales se puede revivir la historia con las fotografías es el World Press Photo, fundación que año con año premia y promueve el trabajo visual realizado por fotoperiodistas, periodistas y fotógrafos, entres otros. De esta forma, a partir de este viernes la exposición del World Press Photo estará disponible en el segundo piso del Museo Franz Mayer, y por primera vez se exhibirá por un periodo de dos meses en dicho establecimiento.

La exhibición cuenta con un total de 143 fotografías ganadoras en diferentes categorías, así como también la imagen del asesino del embajador ruso en Turquía, con un dedo en el aire, un arma en la mano y el rostro marcado por la ira, tomada por el fotógrafo turco Burhan Ozbilici, dicha imagen es la ganadora de este año y fue vista 18 millones de veces en las horas posteriores al asesinato.


La foto ganadora del certamen 2017.


Babette Warendorf, curadora y representante del concurso, indicó que al elegir la fotografía ganadora no se busca una foto estéticamente atractiva, sino una imagen que cuenta una historia y ese es el encanto de esta exposición.

Asimismo, dentro de la exposición habrá conferencias, ciclos de cine (anunciaran las películas una semana antes en sus redes sociales) y dos talleres, uno de ellos será de fotoperiodismo y te puedes inscribir directo en el museo o con transferencia interbancaria, tiene una duración de cuatro fines de semana.

Si estás listo para revivir estas historias, te dejo los datos para que puedas acudir

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN -MARCH 29, 2016: A the Emergency hospital Najiba holds her nephew Shabir, age 2, who was injured from a bomb blast which killed his sister in Kabul on March 29, 2016. Najiba had to stay with the children as their mother buried her daughter. In 2016 marked another milestone in its 15-year engagement in Afghanistan. Despite billions of dollars spent by the international community to stabilize the country, Afghanistan has seen little improvement in terms of overall stability and human security. The situation on the ground for Afghans continues to be grave. Security for the Afghan people has also deteriorated in large swaths of the country, further complicating humanitarian response. Afghan civilians are at greater risk today than at any time since Taliban rule. According to UN statistics, in the first half of 2016 at least 1,600 people had died, and more than 3,500 people were injured, a 4 per cent increase in overall civilian causalities compared to the same period last year. The upsurge in violence has had devastating consequences for civilians, with suicide bombings and targeted attacks by the Taliban and other insurgents causing 70 percent of all civilian casualties.

A weathered barber shop in Old Havana, Cuba on January 25, 2016. Cuba at times can feel like a nation abandoned. The aching disrepair of its cities, the untamed foliage of its countryside, the orphaned coastlines — a half-century of isolation has wrapped the country in decay. Yet few places in the world brim with as much life as Cuba, a contrast drawn sharper amid its faded grandeur.

Heavy rain pours as Scene of the Crime Operatives investigate inside an alley on October 11, 2016, where a victim, Romeo Joel Torres Fontanilla, 37, was killed by two unidentified gunmen riding motorcycles in the early morning in Manila, Philippines. President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines began his anti-drug campaign when he took office on June 30. Since then, over 2,000 people had been slain at the hands of the police alone. Beyond those killed in official drug operations, the Philippine National Police have counted more than 3,500 unsolved homicides since July 1. The victims, suspected users and pushers, are not afforded any semblance of due process, and are killed just about everywhere imaginable.

NELSPRUIT, SOUTH AFRICA: "CARE FOR WILD AFRICA" is a donor run orgnaniation that specializes in caring for wounded animals. They have a special focus on rhino and have taken in many rhino orphans from the poaching wars across South Africa at this time. Their latest orphan is Lulah, her mother was killed in Kruger National Park and when the rangers found Lulah she was estimated to be one month old. Hyenas had attacked the tiny calf and chewed off her ears, parts of her nose and inflicted a large bite on her rear right leg. Lulah has a strong will to live and despite fighting off infection in the wound she is looking like she will survive. Lulah has a full time caregiver Dorota Ladosz, 25, who are full time staff at C.W.A. Dorota has an honors degree in both Animal Science and Wildlife Management. She lives full time with Lulah at the time of this picture and sleeps with her in her enclosure. She maintains a constant watch on Lulah’s injuries and her temperature and feeds her at regular intervals. Lulah received surgery on this day and her wounds were cleaned out by Jan-Louis Ras, a surgeon who volunteers his services to Care for Wild Africa but actually usually works on humans. Infections in Lulah’s leg were cleaned out and her ears and the top of her head were dressed and disinfected. Care for Wild Africa has taken care of multiple rhino calves like this and today they have 27 survivors living on the property. Paying for their upkeep and their security is difficult.
