Ariz Ghaderi wins UNICEF Photo of the Year award
A nomad girl stands on an Iranian garbage dump, smiles, looks almost a little ragged: the shot is from Ariz Ghaderi. For the photo, UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund, has now awarded the Iranian photographer the "Photo of the Year" award.
Ghaderi had captured a moment of spite, said actress Jasmin Tabatabai about the photo. "In our world of catastrophes, his photo conveys the hope that even miserable living conditions can not completely destroy the joy and playful ease of children."
The girl's family lives in a tent town; While the adults are looking for work, children browse the garbage for useful. Unicef writes, children in similar situations defended their smiles against the oppressive power of poverty and distress.
