The World Press Photo contest once again occupies the upper level of downtown Rio's CAIXA Cultural, bringing together 154 of the best photographs published in the global press throughout 2012. Taking politics, nature, sport, contemporary issues and culture as their inspiration, the 54 finalists span 32 nationalities, culled from a total of over 100,000 original entries.

The heart-wrenching winning shot, taken by Sweden's Paul Hansen, shows the bodies of two dead Palestinian children wrapped in white sheets, being carried to a mosque in Gaza City by their uncles. Elsewhere, Brazil is represented from the other side of the lens in two photos, one showing the pain of a young crack user, the other a Rio de Janeiro favela occupied by the UPP forces.
