Anthony Suau World Press Photo


Photo from Reuters Pictures

Anthony Suau, a Time photographer based in the U.S., has won the World Press Photo of the Year 2008 award with this picture showing an armed officer of the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department moving through a home in Cleveland, Ohio, following eviction as a result of mortgage foreclosure. Jury chair MaryAnne Golon said: "The strength of the picture is in its opposites. It's a double entendre. It looks like a classic conflict photograph, but it is simply the eviction of people from a house following foreclosure. Now war in its classic sense is coming into people's houses because they can't pay their mortgages".
