Centre Céramique, Avenue Céramique 50

The World Press Photo of the Year 2015
The jury selected an image by Australian photographer Warren Richardson. Richardson’s picture shows refugees crossing the border from Serbia into Hungary.
Taken at night on 28 August 2015, this man and child were part of the movement of people seeking to crossinto Hungary before a secure fence on the border was completed.
Richardson is a freelance photographer, currently based in Budapest, Hungary. He explained how the picture was made:
“I camped with the refugees for five days on the border. A group of about 200 people arrived, and they moved under the trees along the fence line.
They sent women and children, then fathers and elderly men first. I must have been with this crew for about five hours and we played cat and mouse with the police the whole night.
It was around three o’clock in the morning and you can’t use a flash while the police are trying to find these people, because I would just give them away.”
