ANKARA (AA) - An Anadolu Agency photojournalist was awarded third place at the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards for pictures taken at demonstrations at the Gaza border.
Mustafa Hassona won his fourth award in 2019 for a photo series of Palestinians Great Return protests.
The award winning image of a protester in Gaza gripping a Palestinian flag with one hand while swinging a slingshot with his other hand has been included in iconic images from around the world.
The photo of 22-year-old Aid Abu Amr amid black smoke mirrors Eugene Delacroix’s 1830 artistic representation of the French Revolution titled, "Liberty Leading the People," with revolutionaries being led by a woman bearing a French flag and a bayoneted musket.
