Today I’m reminder of the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words.” That is especially true with news photos as they tell us the story of what has happened in the world. Every year the World Press Association gathers in Amsterdam to select a picture of the year. The folks at Buzzfeed have collected each of the photos from 1955-2011 so we can see the winners. I’ll warn you in advance that some of these pictures depict either bad or sad news so they can be a bit disturbing.
Use these photos as a learning tool so they you can raise the designs and photos you create to be even more powerful. Do you have a photo you’d like to share? Visit the Graphics Unleashed Facebook page and post it for everyone to see.
