World Press Photo Exhibition 2012

The young man’s thumb is wedged into his mouth, his elbow curves around his chin and his leg lies at a right angle to his face – the rest of his body is missing. Chopped and diced, the remnants of this man – the fleshy severed limbs and tortured face – sit, neatly sculpted, on the pavement. It’s a normal day in Acapulo, Mexico.

Captured by Pedro Pardo, this scene is just one of the haunting pictures currently on display in the World Press Photo Exhibition at the Southbank Centre.
