Yesterday I got to see a beautiful exhibit of the winners of the 2010 World Press Photos competition, showing at the old church in central Amsterdam. The annual contest highlights the best news photography from around the world in various categories.
I was astounded and moved by so many of the winning photos, which are shocking, sublime, enraging, hilarious and heart-breaking. But this series by Karla Gachet about a tango dancer in Buenos Aires was particularly memorable. I love the rawness and passion of this young woman's devotion to dance that really comes out through these photos. As a dancer, I found these images so inspiring, the story of someone trying to live her dreams.
See all of the winners over at the World Press Photo website.
