Paul Hanna finds a different angle
'I arrived in Italy to cover the Costa Concordia story not even knowing for sure if I would go to Giglio Island and shoot. After landing, I learned that I would be heading straight to the island to help out with the coverage of the bizarre shipwreck tragedy which claimed over 20 lives.
'After spending several days and nights photographing the cruise liner and rescue efforts, I decided to trek out alone across a rugged section of rocky coastline where I had not yet ventured. To my surprise, I saw a lone television cameraman filming what appeared to be items that had washed ashore. Not until I got closer, did I see the Costa Concordia inscription on the bench which must have washed ashore during the night. I was carrying only minimal equipment and the lighting was harsh mid-day sunlight so I decided to shoot in RAW and hope that it would help me be able to maintain detail.'
Equipment used: Canon EOS 5D Mark II, lens 25mm, f6.3, 1/320, ISO 200
