Just visited the World Press Photo website and saw the winner and entries for the World Press Photo of the Year. Brilliant photos there.

But, those photos made me thinking about the world itself. As you can see it for yourself, most of the photos (not all, remind you) are photos of people in distress, in pain, in sorrow or to be exact most of the photos are disturbing photos about human and human condition.

Is this what the world had become? A place of pain and sorrow? No happiness around? The only smiles on most of those photos are the smiles of the oppressor.

Or is it simply that ‘happiness’ is not quite make news-worthy photos anymore? Why documenting happiness when you can documented misery and pain? Happiness is not important, it is not news-worthy and it is definitely won’t make you win an award.

I want to believe I am wrong…
