One thought on “WORLD PRESS PHOTO 2016”
  1. Grazie Osvaldo per dare a conoscere attraverso quest’articolo , la bellissima esposizione fotogiornalistica di questo 2016. Purtroppo la gente si è abituata a “vedere” queste atrocità nel telegiornale televisivo, mangiando a tavola tranquillamente. Chissà sia ora di spegnere la televisione in modo che quando per un attimo si riaccende, queste atrocità possano ancora turbarci indignarci farci male, farci ribellare . Se non siamo di certo noi colpevoli ,lo siamo? , di tutto questo. ..almeno manteniamo la dignità di non farci ammaestrare e non abituarci di fronte alle atrocità delle guerre e del potere di chi comanda. Vedere per Capire è il nome della mostra di quest’anno. Mi piacerebbe credere che sia vero e che siamo ancora in grado di vedere.
    Ti abbraccio
