John Stanmeyer



We are giving life back to tocaphotos blog talking about the winner of the “World Press Photo of the Year 2013” John Stanmeyer.













Stanmeyer is a photographer committed to the Asian and African world. He has worked for National Geographic and Time Magazine and he is a founding member of the VII Photo Agency.


The winning image “Sign” illustrates a group of African immigrants raising their mobiles looking for cover, on the Somalia seashore.

According to Jillian Edelstein, one of the jury members, “it is a picture that links to other stories about technology, globalization, migration, poverty, desperation, alienation and humanity where there is also subtle, poetic work that combines the expression of serious and disturbing facts with the present world”.
