Robert Doisneau Birthday

self portrait


Un centième de seconde par-ci, un centième de seconde par-là mis bout à bout, cela ne fait jamais qu'une, deux, trois secondes chipées à l'éternité.

A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there - even if you put them end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity.

John Moore - Crying Girl on the Border

The 2019 World Press Photo of the Year is awarded to 
‘Crying Girl on the Border’ by John Moore (USA), Getty Images.

“I think this image touched many people's hearts, as it did mine, because it humanizes a larger story. When you see Yanela’s face, and she is more than two years old now, you really 

see the humanity and the fear of making such a long journey and crossing a border in the dead of night.” - John Moore

Congratsssssssssssssssssssss, John and All !!!!!
