世界報道写真展2014
会 期: 2014年6月7日 ( 土 ) ~ 8月3日 ( 日 )

毎年恒例、恵比寿にある東京都写真美術館で開催される世界報道写真展に今年も行ってきました。今回の展覧会で初めて、ウエブサイトからも写真を見れることを知りました。写真家のインタビューがあるものもあり、充実したサイトになっています。国籍はさまざまですが、ほとんどの人が英語を話しています。



SIGNAL
26 February 2013
Djibouti City, Djibouti

African migrants on the shore of Djibouti City at night raise their phones in an attempt to catch an inexpensive signal from neighboring Somalia—a tenuous link to relatives abroad. Djibouti is a common stop-off point for migrants in transit from such countries as Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, seeking a better life in Europe and the Middle East.



BOMB MAKER IN ALEPPO
20 March 2013
Aleppo, Syria
A bomb maker for Syrian rebel forces works in a makeshift bomb factory in the country’s largest city, Aleppo. As the civil war in Syria dragged on into its second year, conflict broke out between factions within the armed opposition forces. Much of the in-fighting was directed against the al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, and other Islamist groups focused on enforcing sharia law. As rebel factions turned on one another, government troops took the opportunity to launch concerted attacks on rebel-held and contested areas, subjecting Aleppo to heavy bombardment.



KACHIN FIGHTERS
15 March 2013
Laiza, Kachin, Burma

Soldiers of the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) drink and sing together at a funeral for one of their commanders, in the city of Laiza, in Kachin State, northern Burma (Myanmar).

The city was under siege by the Burmese military. The Kachin rebellion was one of a number of ethnic uprisings that surfaced after the military junta, which had ruled the country for more than 40 years, began to ease its grip and make moves towards democracy. Kachin State had been given semi-autonomous status soon after Burma regained its independence in 1948. In the 1960s the Kachin launched an insurgency against the central government of Myanmar, demanding greater independence. A ceasefire was brokered in 1994, but the KIA refused to give up arms entirely, and maintained some bases in the jungle. Conflict broke out again in 2011.




OCCUPIED PLEASURES
03 June 2013
Rafah, Gaza
A woman without a travel permit walks through an underground tunnel between Gaza and Egypt on her way to a party, holding a bouquet of flowers. In the latter half of the year, the new Egyptian military government began closing these secret tunnels, which for many Gaza residents were a main passage in and out of the enclave.

More than four million people live in Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, often in overcrowded or deprived conditions. People’s movements are circumscribed and the threat of violence never quite goes away. Yet although the challenges of conflict and occupation overhang everyday life, people are not solely focused on the difficulties of survival.

報道写真というと、事件現場、激しい戦闘などを想像しがちですが、最後のガザのYet although the challenges of conflict and occupation overhang everyday life, people are not solely focused on the difficulties of survival.とあるように厳しい中にも楽しみを見出していることだってあるんですよね。皆で歌っているビルマの少数民族の兵士達にも同じことが言えそうです。
