“Hope for a New Life” by Warren Richardson, is World Press Photo of the Year

Warren Richardson “Hope for a New Life” is selected as World Press Photo of the Year in their 59th World Press Photo Contest. The photo is awarded under category Spot News, Singles. This photo is part of  Winning photos selected from 82,951 photos made by 5,775 photographers from 128 different countries.

Taken at night on 28 August 2015, this man and child were part of the movement of people seeking to cross into Hungary before a secure fence on the border was completed. The photo was taken at higher ISO of 6400 and hence you can see lot of grains in the image and probably the image is also not sharper. But the story of hope amongst refugees that it conveys touches heart and the harsh and dangerous conditions that these refugees are living and struggling to survive, haunt’s us.

Richardson is a freelance photographer, currently based in Budapest, Hungary. He explained how the picture was made:

“I camped with the refugees for five days on the border. A group of about 200 people arrived, and they moved under the trees along the fence line. They sent women and children, then fathers and elderly men first. I must have been with this crew for about five hours and we played cat and mouse with the police the whole night. I was exhausted by the time I took the picture. It was around three o’clock in the morning and you can’t use a flash while the police are trying to find these people, because I would just give them away. So I had to use the moonlight alone.”
