Farrell selects one image each week that showcases the best photojournalism by photojournalists from around the world. The feature runs weekly in The Sunday Long Read.

To Infinity & Beyond 

Freelance photographer Wesley Hitt caught Texas A&M athlete Infinite Tucker in mid-flight as Tucker dove over the finish line to win by a torso the 400-meter hurdles at the SEC Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Fayetteville, Ark. on May 11. Quick reflexes, an instinct to focus on one runner while leaving the stragglers in the back for context plus the high drama of the moment all combined for a stellar sports photograph. The story was just as uplifting: Tucker said he ran for his mother, the woman who gave him his unusual first name and the belief that “my possibilities in life are endless.” He didn’t want to settle for second place like last year. “The last couple of meters, I just envisioned her. And I took that leap.” HT David Davis for the find.

Patrick Farrell, the curator of The Sunday Still, is the 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winner for Breaking News Photography for The Miami Herald, where he worked from 1987 to 2019. He is currently a Lecturer in the Department of Journalism and Media Management at the University of Miami School of Communication.

A new leg, a boy’s joyful dance 

AFP photographer Wakil Kohsar captures the joy of 5-year-old Ahmad Sayed Rahman as he dances on his new prosthetic leg at the International Committee of the Red Cross in Kabul, Afghanistan, on May 7. Kohsar’s low angle fills the frame with the boy, his infectious grin and the new limb, demonstrating triumph and the toll of war at once.  A child of farmworkers, Ahmad lives in a province where the Taliban and the Afghan army frequently fight. He lost his right leg as a baby when he and his sister were caught in the crossfire of a battle.
