ADVENTURE Photographer Wins World Press Award

2_worldpresshoto_461

We were pleased to learn that photographer Brent Stirton just won a World Press Award–first prize in the Contemporary Issues category–for this intense photo of a dead silverback gorilla near Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

We recently sent the conflict-zone photographer to try out a decidedly more tame adventure: a 4-day Andes trek to Machu Picchu along the Camino Salcantay. The catch: After roughing it all day through jungles and glacier, nights were spent resting up in luxe lodges. Check out his Camino Salcantay photo gallery >>

    I have surrendered my free will to the years of accumulated habits and the past deeds of my life have already marked out a path which threatensdd.

    congratulations to your World Press Award your photo is really amazing. I wanna to try it myself because I’m an adventurous person also. It’s just so sad that when you have a chance to take a photo in the gorilla it is dead. But moving forward how was your the whole adventure? I wanna try it myself too if there’s a free time on my schedule. Anyways congrats again. Keep on taking extra ordinary pictures.
