Award winning photo causes controversy

Journalist Gert Van Langendonck located the subjects of Spencer Platt's prize-winning photo from Lebanon. You've probably seen it. The people in the red convertable with t-shirts and designer shades driving through war torn Beirut. Gert met and talked to and photographed the group.

The picture which won the World Press Photo of the Year has stirred up quite a bit of controversy in photojournalist circles.

There's a thought provoking article on PDNOnline, well worth a read.

More soon...
