Compelling images from around the world

The powerful, compelling photos of the world's leading photojournalists will be on show this July at the World Press Photo Exhibition at the Brisbane Powerhouse at New Farm. A photojournalist is driven to tell stories, specifically through photographs.

There aren't any limitations to the topics of the stories they can tell but they can include war and suffering and the extremes of life and death.

The images captured in the photographs are often an expression of social and political commentary shot in locations and at events rarely accessible to the public including isolated locations. They offer a rare glimpse into the world through the lens of some of the world's best photographers.



This year's world photo exhibition doesn't fail to ignite interest, share stories and start conversations. As a competition, it has been running since 1955 and illustrates the power of storytelling through a single image.

If you are keen to catch the exhibition, be sure to get along to the Powerhouse this July. The World Press Photo Exhibition runs from Friday 12 July until Sunday 4 August 2019. Opening times are Monday 6am-5pm and Tuesday to Sunday from 9am-9pm. This exhibition is suitable for ages 15 and over as it contains adult themes and violent images
