Striking Images that Won the 2012 World Press Photo Contest

Looking at the recently announced winners of the 55th annual World Press Photo contest, it becomes clear how photogenic the year was, too.

One of the selected photos: Tsunami, Japan by Yasuyoshi Chiba
The first place press photo of the year, by Samuel Aranda, pictures a woman holding a wounded relative in her arms inside a mosque, converted to a field hospital, during protests in Yemen. Despite the pain it captures, the photograph, like every stark portrayal of animal and human life here, is quite beautiful.
