Public response to the photographs of this scared little girl from Honduras has been overwhelming for me to see. I thought I would share the images that led to the key moment that touched many of you, as it did me. A Honduran asylum seeker, age 2, cries as she and her mother are taken into custody by federal agents near the US-Mexico border. The mother said they had been traveling for a month to reach the United States. They had just crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico and were then transported to a US Customs and Border Protection processing center. The Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy for undocumented immigrants calls for the frequent separation of parents and children while their cases for political asylum are adjudicated, a process that can take months – or years. This is a series of photographs I took while on a ride-along with the Border Patrol in Texas’ Río Grande Valley last week. #gettyimages #undocumented #gettyimagesnews

Congratulations to all the nominees and winners. ‘The Disappearance of Jamal Kashoggi’ by Chris McGrath (@cmcgrath_photo), Getty Images. One of six World Press Photo of the Year Nominees. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An unidentified man tries to hold back the press on 15 October 2018, as Saudi investigators arrive at the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, amid a growing international backlash to the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. A critic of the Saudi regime, Khashoggi had been missing since entering the consulate on 2 October 2018 to obtain documents. After weeks of rumor and false information, Riyadh announced that Khashoggi had been killed accidentally during an altercation. Turkish authorities and the CIA claimed he had been murdered by Saudi intelligence operatives, working under high Saudi authority. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ – ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The 2019 Photo Contest & 2019 Digital Storytelling Contest Nominees have been announced! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Discover the stories that matter, chosen by an independent jury of photography and digital storytelling professionals by following the link in our bio, or go to: www.worldpressphoto.org ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The winners will be announced at the Awards Show in Amsterdam on 11 April. @worldpressphoto ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WPPh2019 #worldpressphoto

I’m so so happy to have my (Re)Birth project part of 2019 world press photo selection!! And to have this photo among the 6 nominees for Photo of the Year!! The peace agreement in Colombia is such an historical moment, and Yorladis & Michael carry, with this newly allowed pregnancy, the 53 years of guerrilla and the hope for new civil life. Thanks to @worldpressphoto and to @canonfrance and @visapourlimage for the canon photojournalist grant who allowed me to produce the story Thanks @diegocarrerob for the support – #colombia #worldpressphoto #worldpressphoto2019 #award #history #maternity #babiesafterweapons #guerrilla #postconflict #farc #pregnancy #hope #nominee #peaceandlove #fragilepeace #ideservethisbaby #photojournalism #photography #fotoperiodismo #humanity
