This is the most beautiful photo of the year!
The "World Press Photo 2021" photo contest has announced the winners of the year. The most beautiful photo is called "The First Hug". The protagonist is an 85-year-old woman, a resident of a nursing home, and her nurse.
With a large bag tied to the body the nurse has embraced the patient after many months. At the moment of embracing her wings are open like an angel. The photo is a symbol of the impossibility to embrace freely, but also of the sacrifices of medical teams around the world.
The photo was taken by Mads Nissen, a Danish photographer. The competition was held yesterday in Amsterdam.
