In the daytime, the outraged people took to the streets in order to protest against the result of the presidential election in Iran. When then returned home in the evenings, their protest did not remain silent: They shouted it out from the rooftops of their homes. Just like these women in the night of 24 June 2009. The Italian photographer Pietro Masturzo captured this scene and created a picture, which shows both a special historic moment and how it touches upon people’s lives. At the same time, Masturzo succeeded in creating a photograph which is outstanding in terms of composition and colour. On Friday, this photo was chosen as the 2009 World Press Photo.
