I know I posted something similar a while back but I checked and the link from that post and it is down. This is similar but this has photos the other link did not. This is a video montage with music so TURN down your speakers before clicking the link. Some extremely powerful images and some are graphic in nature but ignoring images like these does not make them any less real or stop similar situations occurring now and in the future. To me nothing is as powerful as a still image and why I love photography and admire those photographers who do the hard work of capturing the cold harsh reality of our world. It is worth the 3 minutes and 31 seconds of your time. These photographs are hard to look at and they will probably affect you as they should, but I hope not in a depressing manor, but in a way that makes you more involved in charity and politics even in a small way, as every effort to bring change helps.

Thanks for sharing this; it is amazing how some moments are stopped in time and remain there untouched. Cannot say that a movie ever had that effect ...

I am routinely amazed what we as humans will do to our own species. Greed, money and religion dominate the root cause of most of the atrocities. It's why it's referred to as "inhuman". The animals live and the wrong people are paying.

I've seen most of these before and just got chills looking at some of these again. Thx for sharing the link - just shared it as well.

Vey powerful images. I don't think I would have the stomach to take pictures like that. I think you have to be a special breed to be that kind of photojournalist.

Actually, if you were at the right time in the right place, I bet you would make the shot! I would, if I ever had the chance. But then I live a sheltered life .... It is peculiar - and this is along Andrew's train of thought - how we call ourselves human "BEings" yet we refer to the rest of the breathing populus as "animals". Once we all understand that there is nothing else that matters than to "BE", then we may actually enter an age of real peace. Shakespeare had it right: the real question is to "BE" or not to "BE".
