Although I enjoy taking pictures, I don’t have a special talent for it. The photographers who sent in their photos to the World Press Photo jury sure do! Only until half a year ago, when I visited an exhibition of World Press Photo winners of ’06 in Copenhagen, I found out that the organisation behind this great annual press photography contest is Dutch. This makes me love it even more :-)
The winners of 2007 were announced in February already, and today the exhibition tour, featuring many prizewinning photos, started in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam. The exhibition will be in many cities around the world. If you would like to see if the exhibition comes in a city near you, click here.
By clicking on the photos I posted here, you can find out the story behind them and their photographers.
