The oblivion.

I visited the World Press Photo in Madrid,and most of the images I saw there are still stuck in my head…wars,human right violations,violence…all perfectly portrayed. Thing is,we are (sadly) so used to watch this dramas in our own homes,on the tv,while having lunch,that it´s like you know those things are happening but always seem so far away,if you know what I mean. 

That´s why the job of photo journalists is so important I think. They capture the perfect moment,the high peak,(and yes I am aware that you can replay a vid as many times as you want) ,and make you realize that the world is a complete mess. 

I took this candids of the visitors that morning. They watched the photos,and then finished the visit through the amazing building that holds the exhibit. They didn´t seem as disturbed as I was after what they saw in those images…and after that we all kept going with our lives. 

Yes,here I chant the “mea culpa”,too.
