Utoya

 

Norwegian photographer, Andrea Gjestvang won the 2013 Sony World Photography Award for portraying the youth survivors of the Utoya massacre in 2011.

I have trouble wrapping my mind around events like this, but these thoughtful images provide a face for the pain and an invitation to the rest of the world to weep with those who weep. I can’t get their faces out of my head, and I suspect that is the whole idea. Such a beautiful extraction of art from human tragedy is meant to stay with us even when the rest of the world has moved on to other headlines.

Thank you, Gjestvang for inviting me to remember this one day in history.
