    World Press Photo of the Year Jodi Bieber, a South African photographer for Time magazine, won with  this picture of Bibi Aisha, an 18-year-old woman from Oruzgan province  in Afghanistan. Aisha’s story began when she fled back to her family  after complaining of violent treatment from her husband. The Taliban  arrived one night demanding that she face justice and Aisha’s  brother-in-law held her down while her husband sliced off her ears and  then cut off her nose. Aisha was abandoned, but later rescued by aid  workers and the US military. After time in a women’s refuge in Kabul,  she was taken to the US, where she now lives. Jury chair David Burnett  said about the photo: ‘This could become one of those pictures – and we  have maybe just 10 in our lifetime – where if somebody says “you know,  that picture of a girl” you know exactly which one they’re talking  about’ Photograph: Jodi Bieber
