2009 World Press Photo Exhibition (Macau)

The international World Press Photo jury selected a photo by American photographer Anthony Suau as Photo of the Year 2008.

The TIME magazine photo shows an armed police officer searching a deserted home in the state of Ohio to make sure the residents had moved out, following repossession.

The impact of this 'war-image' encapsulates the pain of foreclosure, which has become endemic in many countries as a result of the world financial crisis.

The Association of Dutch Photojournalists was founded in 1955 and holds this exhibition every year, which officially opens in Amsterdam and tours some 100 cities in 45 countries.
