Exhibition of the prestigious World Press Photo 2006 is difficult not to remain when seeing the series of 200 photographies selected for 49º, exhibited from today consternado in center Cultural Borges (Viamonte and San Martin). The winning images of the annual aid of fotoperiodismo reflect from wars, disasters of the nature and the violence of the daily life, to sport images, personal histories or artistic expressions of great human impact.

On 83,000 presented/displayed photographies of almost 4500 fotorreporteros worldwide, the sample reunites the works awarded in ten categories next to other outstanding images that will cross 90 countries during a year and will be exhibited in Buenos Aires until the 3 of December. The route begins with a disquieting photo: the face of a young mother in a clinic of emergency for affected by hambruna the northwest of Nigeria, during the terrible drought that was the year last in that African region, in which the hand of its baby of hardly a year covers the mouth to him. That was the photo of the year, and its author, the Canadian Finbarr Or’ Reilly, of Reuters.


«This is a sample to celebrate the work of the fotoperiodista, since often a portrayed scene is admired but it does not think about that there was a person there, about that precise moment and in that precise place who often risks her life to immortalize a scene”, it expressed to profile the Dutch Elsbeth Schouten, curadora of the exhibition. “I chose to mount the exhibition of a thematic way, thus she is as I grouped related to the earthquake of Kashmir or the Hurricane Beau and the Tsunami, that are of different photographers. But it is important to register a history from diverse angles and styles”, it emphasized Scouten. And it added that one is a sample that “tries to inform to the public into which happens in the world, and to homenajear the 75 deaths per year of fotoperiodistas that are killed to risk to do click that often counts an incredible history”.

In the 2005 subjects that crossed the news they had to do with the nature, but also figure in the first place the situation in Iraq, the car suicidal pumps in London or the conflict Palestinian-Israeli”, emphasized the curadora of the sample. The disaster that left the Katrina hurricane, the terrible earthquake in Kashmir, the mortal tsunami in Indonesia, the infantile operation in Bangladesh, an incredible explosion of bats in Zambia, the eventful journeys that must carry out the dancers in the school of ballet of Moldova, the secret tunnels in Israel to provide armament to the Palestinians; the identification of bodies, ten years later, in Sbrenica; the arrival of North American sailors in coffins to the United States and the odyssey so that the African immigrants can step on mainland in the Canary Islands, among other known dramas, mix with scenes amused of better gaining a prize in the nailed race course or an exquisite one in a swimming match in Santa Clara. Of Latin America, the curadora mentioned a history of Guatemala, a series that obtained the third prize in the category news article of the Argentine photographer Rodrigo Abd: “It followed the violent itinerary of “maras”, those bands arisen in Guatemala that were integrated in his origins by the children of displaced indigenous agriculturists of his places of origin by the civil war and that, in years 80, settled down in the outskirts”.

The images – hung in the walls of the room, they unfold a sorcery to which is difficult to subtract itself and arm to a puzzle of very dissimilar subjects but in which one can find the signs of these times. A boy of Bangladesh, behind a machine to sew, raises his hand at the moment in which an overseer of the factory where he works threatens it a wood not to fulfill the amount of stipulated articles. And in South Africa, in Johannesburg, a passport for its future with his bored dance slipper in first plane appears a girl in a class of ballet -. A young North American nadadora is caught when striking itself with the springboard in an acrobatic jump, bullfigthers boast in a bullfight of bulls in Medellín; and children of the street in the Congo shower and laugh in a refuge where they receive food and a place to sleep: they were thrown to the street by his own parents, defendant of witchcrafts, to bring economic problems or of the death of some relative.

The exhibition will be able to in center visit Cultural Borges, Viamonte and San Martin, of Monday through Friday of 10:00 to 21:00. And Sundays and holidays of 12:00 to 21:00 .hs.
