The first embrace, the famous covid-19 hug photograph has become the World Press Photo of the year.
We all know how important human touch is. Touches can be warming and they bring a sense of security to humans from other humans.
Especially in these times of COVID-19, we all are getting to experience never seen before pictures and videos. Most of them are so touching that we just cannot resist looking and sharing them, as humans.
A photograph of an 85-year-old Brazilian woman getting a hug after five months has been chosen as the World Press Photo of the Year.
The iconic photograph shows the elderly woman getting her first hug through a transparent hug curtain from a nurse.
This world press photo of the year was taken by Danish photographer Mads Nissen. He has beautifully captured the moment when Rosa Luzia Lunardi was hugged by nurse Adriana Silva da Costa Souza at the Viva Bem care home in Sao Paulo on Aug. 5.
