MSF: Spencer Platt

Medecins Sans Frontieres brings us an audio slideshow of photographs by Spencer Platt, a staff photographer with Getty Images, who spent two weeks in December 2007 with MSF in the Central African Republic.

Spencer Platt won last year's World Press Photo of the Year prize for his excellent photograph of a group of five cavalier Beirut residents cruising in a red Mini convertible through a neighborhood that has been reduced to rubble by Israeli bombs.

This MSF slideshow is very well narrated by Spencer. I chose the above photograph because it made me wonder whether this sign prohibiting an automatic rifle makes a difference.
