Das World Press Photo of the Year 2011 von Samuel Aranda

Eine besondere Auszeichnung erhält dabei der Spanier Samuel Aranda und darf sein Foto das „World Press Photo of the Year 2011“ nennen. Auf dem Foto hält eine verschleierte Frau ihren verwundeten Sohn in den Armen, aufgenommen in einer Moschee im jemenitischen Sanaa während den Konflikten gegen die Regierung von Präsident Ali Abdullah Saleh am 15. Oktober 2011. Aranda war im Auftrag der New York Times in Jemen.

Jurymitglied Koyo Kouoh äußert zu dem Foto: „Es präsentiert Jemen, Ägypten, Tunesien, Libyen, Syrien – einfach alles, was während des arabischen Frühlings geschah.“

Über Samuel Aranda:

Samuel Aranda was born in 1979 in Santa Coloma de Gramanet, Barcelona, Spain. When he was 19, he began working as a photojournalist for El Pais and El Periodico de Catalunya.
