Dead bodies on the street, photographed from a car. The maker of the photograph cannot be revealed. Victims are mostly kidnapped and then murdered. Bodies are thrown on the street as warning or terror. Some militias prohibit family members to pick up the dead bodies. Sometimes it proves be a booby trap.

British Press Photographers

03.12.08 | Sean Smith

Nice to see large exhibition for photography in this country. Photo journalism certainly needs it. Great that there were so many discussion groups on different issues around photography. That said  i am disappointed that amongst all the shows and talks the work of the British Press Photographers Association or British Press Photographers Year was given no exposure at all or invited to any of the debates . At a time when press photography is having a tough time it would be nice at festival for photography to have the organization doing most to promote current work of people still working in the press field not the commercial one to have a voice .
