A gain award is an award for lifetime right ?? And this Arnaldo Carvalho received by the photo of the work done last year by the team of the Jornal do Commercio of Pernambuco, which toured the 9 states of the Northeast tracing the path of Hunger is more than deserved it. And it is the famous, sought, good and recognized Esso Prize . On the last day 08, Arnaldo literally starred in the Victoria Prize, because a picture of the main character, is called Ana Victoria who had been 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 the geographer and physician, Josué de Castro, the hunger episode continues to be seriously alarmed children and families, especially in the Northeast. A complaint touching too ... And it's not as some editors and photographers around the world to God, "another poor photo starving, with runny nose and eye gummy". It is hunger in one of its worst consequences denounced in an image that does not need much more than appears to make us think !!!! It is a photographer aiming a girl who can no longer see ... Pain twice !!! Three times !!
This type of award is worth the exercise of photojournalist profession. Monitor the improvement from Ana Victoria, although other problems that arose with her ​​due to blindness, published by the blog Pictura Pixel . For congratulations Arnaldo and the Jornal do Commercio which also took the Grand Prize of Journalism Esso in 2009, and the Graphic Creation - Newspapers. And congratulations not only for gain, but by the power of wide open and latent complaint in this work as required to be served, seriously awarded and taken as a benchmark for many others that will contribute to the information and the improvement of a thirsty society of good deeds and more watchful eyes to what happens with whom, yourself speak, Arnold, "is invisible to the eyes and soul of the country."
And the vanity to win a prize of this size, is thrown in the trash !! Still well !! I wish everyone thought that an award is not just for with money in his pocket and gain taken "fame" ... And Arnaldo think better !! Collaborating for change is still the best prize. And I'm not Catholic! Marxist, maybe !! Congratulations, Arnaldo !! Come other awards and collaborations to his photojournalism, improving it and social issues !! Hopefully ever !! Good luck!

    The aesthetics of poverty, hunger and poverty will never be a hit topic, as long as there is this deplorable condition of life of our citizens, the picture will be there to report and educate both the population and the government. Congratulations for "beautiful" work!
