Senate Speaker Piero Grasso praises PhotoANSA 2013
A year in pictures, told with 'power and immediacy'03 December, 17:23
"Photography is a particularly effective tool, evoking the people and events that have entered into our collective memory with power and immediacy. I don't know if a picture is worth a thousand words, but without a doubt, many of the images in this volume are very powerful". As examples, the speaker pointed to shots of "the two popes, and the dramatic ones of the Syrian revolution, reminding us that hundreds of people lost their lives through the barbaric use of poison gas".
