It is the time of year when the world’s best press photographs are on display in Zürich.
World Press Photo is an exhibit that shows the world through the lens of press photographers. The courageous men and women are there when a crisis takes place, capturing humanity during its weakest moments. Be it the unfolding of the refugee crisis, wars and conflicts, social issues or protests, press photographers are on site to document the events unfolding and to share these impressions with the rest of us.
This year, new forms of photo and video journalism will supplement the World Press Photo Exhibition.
The following are some first-hand impressions captured by our own press photographer, Cloudia Chen, when she attended a media preview. The tour was narrated by Mr. Jerzy Brinkhof, the curator of World Press Photo, as well as Mrs. Magdalena Herrera, President of the World Press Photo jury and Director of Photography at GEO France.
