Images of Ebola outbreak take top prize at SWPAs

A series of images showing the heartbreak, brutality and horror of the Ebola virus as it tore through West African communities has taken the top prize at the world's largest international photography competition.
American John Moore's poignant photographs of the outbreak in Liberia were praised by the judges for compassionately illustrating how people's daily lives were destroyed and families decimated by the deadly disease.  
The Sony World Photography Award winners were announced at a gala in London last night, where Mr Moore's images were named the best from a group of first place winners in categories that included architecture, arts and culture, conceptual, contemporary and landscapes.

This photographer just brought positivity out of negativity. Even a photo that was meant to be graphics, he turned to something beautiful and inspiring.
