World Press Photo 10

October 20, 2010

I was totally blown away today after viewing this exhibit down at Brookfield Place. This contest is held every year and exhibited in different cities around the world. It promotes the craft of photo-journalism and the free exchange of information on important world issues revolving around the environment, politics, war and human interest.

The calibre of the photos are outstanding and each one stands alone in telling a gripping story with a predominate message. Some of the photos are shocking and disturbing detailing death, torture and misery, but others are touching and intimate; inspiring in their own right. Indeed the words that come to mind for me after leaving the photos were stimulating, heart wrenching, violent, pathos, gruesome, educational, beautiful. The offering on display certainly makes one think of our world in a whole new light, expanding what could be a narrow view of our sometimes insular surroundings. Certainly an exhibit not to be missed. The show runs until October 28.

Sorry, the images are copyrighted so I cannot include any in this post. You really have to see them in person anyway to get the full impact.
