2003 World Press Photo of the Year.- Jean-Marc Bouju
With barbed-wire in the foreground, the picture shows a father who has been detained by the Army’s 101st Airborne division. The man wears a bag over his head, and he clutches his son in his lap. The tenderness in the man’s actions, in light of his situation, won over the jury.
Shortly after the picture was taken, another unit came and took the prisoners away, including the young boy. Bouju was not able to get the name of the father or the son or determine what, if anything, they had done wrong.
