Esso ... and the prize goes to photograph ...... arnaldo oak!
A prize won is an award for lifetime huh? And this Arnaldo Carvalho received the picture of the work done last year by the team Jornal do Commercio of Pernambuco, which toured the 9 Northeastern states by tracing the path of Hunger is more than deserved it. And is the famous, sought, good and recognized Esso Prize . 08 On the last day, literally starred Arnold Victory Award, as the main character of the picture, called Ana Victoria who had gone blind in both eyes due to starvation and malnutrition. Sad to know that after more than 60 years of publication of the compendium Geography of Hunger , by geographer and physician, Josué de Castro, the episode of hunger continues to be seriously alarmed children and families, especially in the Northeast. A complaint, too heartbreaking ... And not as some editors and photographers around the world of my God, "over a photo of starving poor, with runny nose and blear eye." Is the hunger in one of its worst consequences reported in an image that does not need much more than presents to make us think!! And a photographer is aiming for a girl who can not see anymore ... Pain twice! Three times!
This type of award is worth the profession of photojournalist. Monitor the improvement from Ana Vitoria, although other problems that arose due to her blindness, blog published by Pictura Pixel . Well, congratulations Arnaldo and Jornal do Commercio which also led the Greater Esso Journalism Award 2009 and the Creation Graphic - Journal. And congratulations not only by gain but by the power of blatant and latent in this work as required to be served, awarded and taken seriously as a milestone for many others that may contribute to information and improving a society thirsty for good deeds complaint and more watchful eye to what happens to those who, yourself talking, Arnaldo, "is invisible to the eyes and soul of the country."
And vanity by winning a prize of this size, is thrown in the trash! Glad! I wish everyone thought that an award is not just for for money in his pocket and taken gain "fame" ... And Arnold thinks better! Collaborating for change is still the best prize. And I'm not Catholic! Marxist, maybe! Congratulations, Arnold! Come other awards and his contributions to photojournalism, improvement goals and social issues! Hopefully forever! Good luck!
