"Crying Girl on the Border" Wins World Photo of the Year Award


John Moore’s photograph, “Crying Girl on the Border,” is powerful. The Getty Images photographer was awarded the prestigious World Press Photo of the Year award for the image, the Associated Press reports.

As AP reports) the award-winning photograph showed a Honduran toddler crying as a U.S. Border Patrol officer pats down the child’s mother in Texas.  Getty Images photographer John Moore’s winning image shows 2-year-old Yanela Sanchez and her mother, Sandra Sanchez, after they were taken into custody in June 2018.  In my estimation, the photo heled build public outrage that culminated in the Trump administration ending its policy of separating migrant parents and children.

Time magazine published the photo on a cover of an issue.
