The World Press Photo of the Year 2024
The winning 2024 World Press Photo was photographed by Mohammed Salem, a Palestinian photographer born in 1985. His moving photo is titled "A Palestinian Woman Embraces the Body of Her Niece." According to the photographer, the image captures a powerful and sad moment that captures the general feeling of what was happening in the Gaza Strip at the time.
