Ya que estamos con los recuentos de fin de año (es inevitable), y ya les he dejado unos días atrás lo que para la revista Times Online son las 100 mejores películas del año, ahora le toca el turno a la fotografía, un tema que es de vital importancia en la historia contemporánea, la elaboración de la memoria, y claro, en este blog.

Para Telegraph.co.uk, estas son las 28 fotografías más impactantes del año (y el adjetivo no podría ser más exacto).

Les dejo algunas que en lo personal me dejan realmente a-no-na-da-do.

Hoy The Big Picture acaba de colgar sus 40 fotos seleccionadas, bajo el título "El año 2008 en fotografías (parte 1 de 3)". Hay de todo (incluso muchas repetidas con la selección de Telegraph, no solo impactantes, sino realmente hermosas y por supuesto espectaculares. Les dejo el link abajo pero no sin dejarles 4 fotos que llaman la atención sobre todo porque son acciones hechas entre hombres o entre grupos. En todo caso entre seres humanos, que somos los que en el fondo hacemos la historia. Y no he puesto las fotos más violentas. Esperaremos la parte 2 y 3 con ansias.

Esa magia escapa a los ojos humanos, pero solo es visible poder la apreciar, en toda su dimensión, con una camara fotográfica.
