"This image represents the exhaustion of a man -- and the exhaustion of a nation," jury chairman Gary Knight, a photographer with the VII agency, said of Hetherington's winning image. "We're all connected to this. It's a picture of a man at the end of a line." Time magazine's director of photography MaryAnne Golon, who also served on the jury, commented: "I use all my energy to have people notice bad things. There's a human quality to this picture. It says that conflict is the basis of this man's life."
