Award : And the winner is ?

Every year the most prestigious award for Photojournalism is announced, the award is becoming also a showcase of interpretation of events rather than the usual stereotype of photojournalism which is dying with the advent of a better technology which allow to many to be able to shoot a photo enough good for editorial needs......
I found interesting some photographers and some features, among the third place in portraits stories given to Chinese Li Jiejun of New Express Daily. Is a series of photographs of miniature models (similar to the idea of Paolo Ventura photograhy) which depict famous scenes from the war. I choose for this post the reproduction of a photo from Cornell Capa (which was proved to be fake)... so what is better than re-shoot a fake photo?
