The Photo that speaks a Thousand Words

imageThis photo was taken by a talented photographer named by Goran Tomasevic, in the Central African Republic, where violent outbreaks have continued since the end of 2012, when Séléka rebels launched a military campaign against former president François Bozizé. On May 28th, 15 people were killed near the Notre Dame Cathedral of Fatima in Bangui. The unnamed boy in the photo is wearing a Real Madrid jersey, probably something he found in one of many donation boxes. The sponsor, BWIN, is a multi-million dollar betting company. Tomasevic brilliantly captures innocence, violence, and inequality in his magnificent shot.
