World Press Photos of the Year
Rebecca Brayton: The World Press Photo Exhibit showcases the best photo journalism on the globe. Hi, I’m Rebecca Brayton and welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be learning more about the role of press photography today as well as how it is impacted by changing technologies.
When all the photos were brought in initially, did you see a trend in the photos that were submitted?
Jarre Janssen: Well, there was a lot about China in the earthquake obviously. There were little photo shows of Georgia of the conflict between Georgia and South Ossetia. So there were events last year, special events.
Rebecca Brayton: Would you like to show some of your favorite reportages?
Jarre Janssen: Of course, no problem. We’re standing here in front of Anthony Suaus’ winning image show “Vote the Photo of the Year 2008”. It’s part of the “Daily Life”, a series on the economic crisis, the financial crisis. It looks like it’s related to drugs or it’s related to crime or to war even. The victims in this picture were not—you know they’re not guilty of more than a being to pay their bills.
Now, we’re standing in front of a reportage made by Callie Shell. She did it four times. It won the first prize in the news category and obviously you can see this about Barack Obama, the new president of United States but there’s a whole history in front of it. She started off as the photographer for Jim Carrey but she saw this guy, Barack Obama. This guy who was totally charismatic, and got a lot of humor and she felt that there was something going on.
She felt that this man could be maybe the next president and she started following him and time told her like what are these images about? We ask her to shoot Jim Carrey so she’s that well and I feel there’s something going on and I feel that he might be an important guy in the future so, this I was he thinks so then go ahead.
