월스트리트저널(WSJ, Wall Street Journal)의 2011년 사진전 입니다.
전체사진의 반 이상이 테러, 전쟁, 폭력 그리고 홍수나 지진, 사고 등으로 채워져 있네요.
다른 해에 비하여 특히나 이런 끔찍한 재난과 인간들의 다툼이 많았던 한해였던 것 같습니다. 빅 스포츠 행사가 없어서 그런지 스포츠에 관한 사진이 그리 많지 않은것도 특징입니다.
재난 사진과 전쟁이나 테러관련 사진들은 좀 많이 추려내고 나머지 한해동안 일어났던 다사다난했던 일들을 되돌아 봅니다.
내용은 월별 순서대로 되어 있고 두번에 걸쳐 나눠 올렸습니다.
지구촌에는 참으로 끊임없이 여러가지 일들이 일어나고 있네요.
