Photographer's Note

From a visit to world press photo 2006, from viewing the website I was initially sceptical about the exhibition, glad I went there, and would even encourage everyone to visit, website doesn't do it justice although some images being there do surprise me (especially the diver hitting her head against the board, almost like america's funniest videos clip), alot of extreme violance that is difficult to look at, yet at the same time I would have regretted had I not gone there.

Photographically mostly unsuccesfull visit for me, couldn't come up with any different angles, while was quite happy with my last year's output, this year for the most part I found repeating myself with a similar approach. Nothing original here, the caution tape has been succesfully used by Mking in many of his pictures, but hey, if I am to take only pictures that have never been done, I would never make another photo.

In the background you will see parts of 3 images, child labourer in Bangladesh being punished (photographer G. Akash, Bangladesh), Nigerian gang member (photographer P Hugo, South Africa, unfortunately I have cut of his pet, muzzled hiena on a leash), displaced girl in Pakistan after earthquake (photographer T Monita, Chile).
