The winner of this year's World Press Photo Award is a picture taken by US photographer Spencer Platt on 15 August 2006 - the first day of the ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah - in a bombed-out street of South Beirut.
It is a tremendous image, adding fault lines and divisions to those imposed by borders and wars. A kaleidoscope of meaning buried by the rubble. The comfortable and the not-so-comfortable heading off in different directions. Sunglasses, naked shoulders and an immaculate white T-shirt. Distance, safety, exposure and removal. So unflinching in its glamour. So softcore as warporn. Drive-by tourism, the spectacle is made real by a texting hand and the camera of a media man. A cloud of dust above the shiny red car. As spotless as blood. They head home.
There are audio, video and visual fragments of Italy's punk past to be found at Gomma Tv.
