Premium Photo Competition 2014 5 : Entry Number 133

Judges Comment

We have seen this photo before, and it is still a striking image from the bombings in London. The calm reflection over a life-threatening situation while it is still chaos all over. A historic photograph.

A commuter, one of many walking wounded, leaves the Edgware Road Underground Station, still clutching his morning paper. A suicide bomber blew himself up on a tube train at the station, killing seven passengers. This was one of four terrorist attacks on the transport system, resulting in 52 innocent deaths. London, 7 July 2005. Photo: Edmond Terakopian This was shot on a Canon 1D Mark II and Canon 300mm f2.8L IS lens. The image was processed adhering to normal photojournalistic standards (no manipulation). This image won third place in the prestigious World Press Photo, in the Spot News category. As 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of this crime, I entered the image again to remind us all of the horrendous events of that black day.
