El pasado 20 de febrero World Press Photo (WPP) dio a conocer las imágenes candidatas a la fotografía del año, así como de los nominados dentro de las ocho categorías que conforman el premio. Los ganadores de las mismas, serán reconocidos mañana.

Los fotoreporteros nominados son reunidos en Ámsterdam, sede del concurso, como parte de la ceremonia de premiación por su labor periodística. Dentro de la lista de los probables acreedores al premio, figuran dos mexicanos: Pedro Pardo, quien en 2012 ganó el tercer lugar del concurso en la categoría Temas contemporáneos, y Yael Martínez, fotógrafo que por primera vez aparece entre los nominados.

Mediante una imagen compartida en el Instagram de Pardo, se observa a ambos artistas de la lente abrazados, en camino a la ceremonia, en la que esperan que su trabajo, considerado dentro de los eventos más importantes de 2018, sea uno de los grandes ganadores.


Historias

Climbing the Border Fence, que capta a migrantes centroamericanos tratando de cruzar la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos, en Tijuana, Baja California, es la imagen que describe el trabajo de Pardo. Mientras que, The House That Bleeds, de Martínez, retrata el resultado de la violencia del crimen organizado en México.

From ‘The house that bleeds’ by Yael Esteban Martínez Velázquez (@yaelmtzv), a documentary photographer based in Mexico. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Bloody moon ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Feathers in blood. A slaughterhouse where Abel Granda works. His two brothers have been missing since 2013. Acapulco Guerrero 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Tears. Lucero Granda (my wife) takes a shower at home, Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. Dried roots of Cactus on a wall in the community of Tixtla, Guerrero, Mexico. It had been more than a year and still no results of the 43 missing students in Guerrero, Mexico, on 7 November 2015. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. Burning man. A shadow of a person on a wall in the community of Metlatonoc. The Mountain of Guerrero is a territory without law. Dozens of people have moved to other places to live. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Guerrero is one of the Mexican States that has affected the most by organized crime; it is the second poorest, and the most violent state in the country. The condition of social and economic marginalization of Guerrero is becoming more evident. The crisis of the rule of law is increasingly alarming and forced disappearances are just one of the symptoms that prove it. In 2013, three of my brothers-in-law died; one of them was killed; the other two disappeared. They used to live in Iguala, the place from where the Ayotzinapa students disappeared. After these events I began documenting my family, in order to capture the psychological and emotional breakdown caused by the loss of family members, especially for parents, children, and siblings. I am working with the concepts of pain, emptiness, absence, and forgetting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yael is one of the six selected talents of the 6x6 Global Talent Program, in North and Central America. The World Press Photo Foundation’s 6x6 Program aims to connect visual storytellers around the world, particularly those that might not be well known outside of their own region, to a global audience.

‘Climbing the Border Fence’ by Pedro Pardo (@ppardo1) (Mexico, Agence France-Presse) is one of three nominees in the ‘Spot News, singles’ category of the 2019 Photo Contest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Central American migrants climb the border fence between Mexico and the United States, near El Chaparral border crossing, Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. 25 November 2018. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Refugees who were part of a caravan that originated in Honduras in October, began arriving at the border in November to find a backlog of some 3,000 people waiting to be processed into the United States, and a potential delay of months. This led to rising tensions, and to people breaking away from the caravan to attempt their own entry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re sharing the nominees of the 2019 Photo Contest & 2019 Digital Storytelling in alphabetical order, by category. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Discover the stories that matter, chosen by an independent jury of photography and digital storytelling professionals by following the link in our bio, or go to: www.worldpressphoto.org ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The winners will be announced at the Awards Show in Amsterdam on 11 April. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WPPh2019 #worldpressphoto
