World Press Photo instead of sailing on the peaceful water of the lake

Planned to sail this weekend, but wind was too weak. So I joined the this years “World Press Photo” exhibition in the Westlicht museum in Vienna. Pictures showing people, who suffer or who could not resist extrordinary violance of nature or human beings themselves. It seems to be unreal, but each picture tells a true story. A brutal way to portrait, how hard life can be. And many pictures proof, that there was no way to escape…

The picture below shows the finger of a child on the mouth of the mother, shot in a firts aid center in Tahoua, Niger, by Finbarr O´Reilly from Kanada.
