Our World Now 6
Watch a video showcasing some of the best images from the book reuters.com/ourworldnow.

The sixth volume of the bestselling Reuters Our World Now collector’s series, published by Thames and Hudson, officially launches today internationally and on June 11th in the US. Reuters photojournalists continually bear witness to events as they happen across the globe.

Producing some 1600 images a day, their award-winning work pushes the boundaries of news photography. Sometimes surprising, sometimes devastating, always compelling, the images in this book, taken by 143 photographers of 55 nationalities
encompass the drama and diversity of trends and topics that defined the past year.

With an introduction by Reuters European Editor Paul Taylor, over 300 striking images and behind-the-scenes Witness features, this highly successful series has become an indispensable record of our times and demonstrates the enduring power of visual storytelling.

Ayperi Karabuda Ecer, vice president of Pictures and picture editor of the series said: "The Our World Now photography book series has become a collector’s item. This success points to the unparalleled global impact of photography, and to our mission at Reuters of journalistic excellence. In Our World Now 6 our photographers captured new struggle for survival in Europe as well as ongoing street battles in Syria and the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. They combined key world moments with intimate details, forming a multi-layered visual story that very few have the privilege to tell.”

Sixteen-year-old prostitute Maya waits for a customer inside her small room at Kandapara brothel in Tangail, a northeastern city of Bangladesh, March 5, 2012. She earns about 300-500 Taka per day ($3.66- $6.11) serving around 15-20 customers every day. Maya's son Halim, a four-year-old child lives with her parents in another Barisal. She cannot save money for her child as she has to pay a lot bills and debt. Maya is one of hundreds of mostly teenage sex workers living in a painful life of exploitation in Kandapara slum's brothel who take Oradexon , a steroid used by farmers to fatten their cattle, in order to gain weight and appear "healthier" and more attractive to clients.

A man carries an injured woman during anti-government protests in Senegal's capital Dakar, February 15, 2012. Senegal riot police used teargas, truncheons, and a water cannon on Wednesday to disperse hundreds of people in the capital Dakar protesting at President Abdoulaye Wade's decision to seek a third term in office. The clashes in the West African state erupted after demonstrators shouting "Wade step down" gathered at a downtown square near the presidential mansion, shrugging off a state ban on protests in the run-up to the Feb. 26 vote.

Somali police officer (R) arrests a suspected rebel member (L) of the Al Qaeda-affiliated al Shabaab among beach goers at the Lido beach north of Somalia's capital Mogadishu March 23, 2012. Lido beach was a famous attraction before Somalia tumbled into chaos in 1991 with the ousting of dictator Mohamed Siad Barre. In the last few years, the beach was a frontline for the Islamist al Shabaab militants, who later withdrew from most parts of Mogadishu around August 2011.
