Fleeing Mosul

A family flees the fighting in Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, as oil fields burned in Qayyara, Iraq, on November 12, 2016. In its sixth week, the military campaign to retake Mosul from the Islamic State had bogged down in a grueling fight. Seeking to escape the bloodshed, more civilians than ever took the risk of evacuation, hoping to find help if they could make it past the militants’ gun range. By mid-December 2016, up to one million people were trapped inside the city, running low on food and drinking water and facing the worsening cruelty of Islamic State fighters.

A carpet of Monarch Butterflies covers the forest floor of El Rosario Butterfly Sanctuary after a snow storm that hit the state of Michoacán in Mexico on March 2015. On March 8th and 9th of 2016 a strong snow storm hit the mountains of Central Mexico creating havoc in the wintering colonies of Monarch Butterflies just when they were starting their migration back to U.S.A. and Canada. Monarch butterflies are surprisingly resilient and they can survive several days in below zero temperatures as long as they remain dry. Deforestation reduces the shelter for the butterflies making them more vulnerable to the weather elements. And although illegal logging has been curbed thanks to the conservation efforts in Mexico, climate change is creating an increase of these unusual weather events which represent one of the biggest challenges for these insects during their hibernation period.

New York edged London 14-12. The Gotham Knights were established back in 2001, after September 11, when Mark Bingham, the former gay rugby player after whom the cup is named, and New York Gotham Knights virtual founder, gave his life as a hero on board of the flight United 93. Muddy York Rugby Football Club looks at the Gotham Knights as a true model in terms of players development, growth and inclusiveness.

Eritreans migrants seen cramped in the hold of a large wooden boat which carried approximately 540 men women and children, mostly Eritreans. 2016 was a deadly year of migrants and refugees trying to cross the mediterranean from Libya's coasts to Italy's. With ever increasing numbers of unseaworthy boats attempting the crossing, charities and NGOs like MOAS are often overwhelmed. MOAS, together with medical teams from the red cross, operates two rescue vessels, the Responder and the Phoenix, just off the coast of Libya. They sit in international waters and await either the distress call from migrants lucky enough to have been given a satellite phone by their smuggler, or to visually find migrants boats - often in the dead of night. Then the race to rescue them before it too late starts. © Mathieu Willcocks/MOAS.eu 2016, all rights reserved.

Venerdì 1 settembre alle 18.30 si inaugura per la prima volta a Palermo a Palazzo Bonocore – piazza Pretoria 2 – il World Press Photo, il più grande concorso di fotogiornalismo al mondo. La mostra sarà ospitata fino al 24 settembre all’interno dello storico palazzo con affreschi settecenteschi che si affaccia su piazza Pretoria, proprio di fronte Palazzo delle Aquile, sede del Comune, tra il monastero di Santa Caterina e Palazzo Bordonaro, nel cuore dei Quattro Canti. Dalle 20.30 alle 22.00 la mostra sarà aperta al pubblico (ticket in loco o su eventbrite). Sabato 2 settembre alle 17.30 ci sarà la prima Public Lecture a cura del pluripremiato e già membro della giuria del WPP per sei anni, il fotogiornalista Manoocher Deghati.

Allestita in circa 200 sedi in 54 Paesi, la mostra si compone delle 150 immagini vincitrici del più prestigioso concorso di fotografia internazionale selezionate da una giuria presieduta da Francis Kohn, direttore fotografico dell’agenzia France-Presse. Per l’edizione 2017 erano in gara 80mila foto, scattate da 5.034 fotoreporter professionisti.

Il vincitore assoluto del World Press Photo of the Year 2017 è Burhan Ozbilici di Associated Press, autore di An Assassination in Turkey – Mevlüt Mert Altıntaş. L’immagine è stata scattata da Ozbilici subito dopo l’omicidio avvenuto ad Ankara il 19 dicembre 2016 durante l’inaugurazione di una mostra, e ritrae un poliziotto, immortalato pochi istanti dopo aver sparato all’ambasciatore russo in Turchia Andrey Karlov.

Ogni anno, migliaia di fotoreporter si contendono il titolo nelle diverse categorie (general news, spot news, contemporary issues, daily life, portraits, nature, sport) per aggiudicarsi un posto nella mostra che attrae milioni di visitatori in tutti e cinque i continenti. Un viaggio per immagini tra gli avvenimenti più rilevanti del nostro tempo e pubblicati su alcune delle testate internazionali più prestigiose come Time, Le Monde, New York Times, The Guardian e National Geographic.
