As a writer who writes about travel and leisure, I am used to a situation to fall in love over and over to beautiful pictures I came across while searching for content ideas. There are places that I don’t even know they truly exist. There were also days where ideas and I didn’t seem to walk on the same path. Having no idea what to write is normal for writers.
However, a start-to-gain popularity photographer, Mohd Nazri from Kelantan, has opened my eyes for pictures that tell stories as my content. I am not going to review about his recent Image of Asia Award 2018 for his “Kampung Boy” masterpiece – let the journalists do their job for this – instead I’d love to share about pictures with meanings, pictures that move our emotions as human.
As for this post, stepping aside from breathtaking white sandy beaches and luxury resorts, I wish to share powerful pictures taken by photojournalists, capturing heartwarming events of all time. Images speak to all of us in ways we can sometimes barely articulate, don’t we? As a saying goes, pictures worth a thousand words.
Let’s travel through these amazing iconic pictures that will keep you in awe. I mean, how do these photojournalists managed to snap these shots at the right moment?
