World Press Photo of the Year Goes to Jodi Bieber

South African photographer wins 45th annual contest.

Bieber's winning image was a portrait of Bibi Aisha, an 18 year old from Afghanistan. The young woman's ears and nose were cut off as punishment after she escaped her husband's home. She fled to her parent's home complaining of abuse. The image sheds light on a personal story and exposes plainly a broader reality. The photograph is shocking but Bibi stares with dignity and beauty. She now lives in the US and is receiving counseling and reconstructive surgery.
