Picture of the Year!

My picture of Hussein Saleh Hassan from Libya  is chosen as Picture of the Year at the annual Danish Picture of the Year contest   (Årets Pressefoto). It’s the second time that one of my images becomes Picture of the Year, first time was in 2007 with an image of overpopulation in The Philippines. More info here.

About the picture: Hussein Saleh Hassan, 52, is fatally wounded. He was hit in the head by a gunshot when he together with a group of local residents attacked and burned down the central police station in Tobruk on 17 February. This was one of the very first violent attacks performed by civilians during the Libyan revolution.
