Tomas Munita wins Leica Award

A Home Fire amid the Junk (2005) detailToday's BBC News In Pictures page has a post entitled Images from Karbul below a sporting Melbourne piglet! The Kabul photos were taken by Chilean freelance photographer Tomas Munita while working in Afghanistan for the Associated Press news agency in 2005. His striking images and use of colour in difficult lighting conditions are superb. His photo report Kabul - Leaving the Shadows wins the prestigious Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2006, awarded annually for photos that convey Man's relationship with his environment (maybe Woman's too?).
