2009 World Press Photo Winners Announced

Anthony Suau, USA, for Time

Anthony Suau, USA, for Time

Congratulations to Anthony Suau, the 2008 World Press Photo of the Year winner for his image of an armed officer of the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Department moving through a home in Cleveland, Ohio, following eviction as a result of mortgage foreclosure.

Jury chair MaryAnne Golon commented: “The strength of the picture is in its opposites. It’s a double entendre. It looks like a classic conflict photograph, but it is simply the eviction of people from a house following foreclosure. Now war in its classic sense is coming into people’s houses because they can’t pay their mortgages.”  (you can watch MaryAnne talk about the photo here)

You can see the rest of the winners in either a gallery or a list.  There’s some amazing work in here from around the world, definitely worth checking out.  Congratulations to all of the winners!
