Sholihuddi, Jawa Pos Daily, Indonesia, 1995



POSTSCRIPT #1: This photo was taken by Sholihuddin and originally published in Jawa Pos in 1995. It was awarded 1st prize for Spot News by the World Press Photo Foundation, who provides the following caption:

A military truck carrying over 100 youths keels over under its heavy load. The passengers were supporters of local football club Persebaya, enjoying a free ride home and waving flags to celebrate their team's victory. The truck - one of 24 made available by a military commander - capsized after only one kilometer. Most of the passengers escaped unharmed, but 12 were hospitalized with minor injuries.

  • Have you tried searching Google Images for the image and then going through the results? You can now upload an image to the search box and Google will find all instances of that image online. Just did it and there're quite a few results - am at work at the moment so I don't have time to look through them, but you might find the answer to your question amongst them.

    Good luck!

  • Wow! Thanks for the tip, gai.ninja! And no, I absolutely did not know about this functionality until now! I see myself wasting hours with this, as I have tons of images that need sourcing.

  • You could also use TinEye, which I've used for years for just this sort of thing.

    It’s Indonesian photograph. It was shot by a journalist from a newspaper called Jawa Pos (i think 3 or 4 years ago) during the Indonesian ‘Thanksgiving’ where everybody went back to their birthplaces. It won an award (i think best picture of the year) from either AP or something else.
    Please don’t write anything if you’re not sure. It just showing your ignorance.

  • Actually it was photographer Sholihuddin for Jawa Pos. Caption reads
