World Press Photo Exhibition 2017

The next day in Amsterdam, we visited the World Press Photo Exhibition and some of the photos exhibited there were amazing and powerful. We spent 3/4 hours in this exhibition, carefully looking around and watching all of the videos, reading all of the text beside each photo and analysing each project.

My favourite part of this project was probably some of the work by Amber Bracken as visually, for me, these photos were the most aesthetically stunning. However there were some powerful, emotional pieces based on street photography and culture photography on the streets of countries like Argentina and Cuba.

I also really enjoyed the sport photography as I felt that it was most personal to me, as many of the moments photographed were moments that I actually remember from my childhood, captured beautifully.

Below is the leaflet from the exhibition, as well as one of my favourite pieces of work.
