Best Shot (228) ~ Samuel Aranda

(254) Samuel Aranda ~ Fatima & Zayad, Yemen, 2011 (7 November 2012).

I only very rarely comment on the images I lift from from this series. Aranda won the World Press Photo Award for this image last year. At the time I was highly (but, I think, constructively)  critical here and here of the image and the award committee. Nothing has changed my mind.

I will also take the opportunity to say, once again, what a great series this is at The Guardian. It now is in the hands of Sarah Phillips who continues the fine work of her predecessors.
