Words and pictures interfered with by a "real" job
Free at the Brisbane Powerhouse

Returning to the Brisbane Powerhouse in June, the World Press Photo Exhibition showcases the work of the world's top press photographers over the last year.
Developed by the World Press Photo Foundation, the World Press Photo Exhibition has run annually for 60 years and tours 45 countries. Last year, over 25,000 people visited the exhibition at the Powerhouse.

Over 73,000 images from 4,548 photographers, representing 125 countries were submitted for this year's competition. Artistic Director Kris Stewart said, "This year's exhibition captures moments in time with brutal honesty. These images raise questions, engage people and show a point of view".
Having attended several of these exhibitions I have found them interesting in the sense that they serve as a commentary and reflection of the last year's history of the world. Press photography holds up a mirror to society and makes us think about what is good and bad about our world. How it is being shaped and the result of what we have created and the choices we have made as nations and societies. It makes us think about what we want or don't want in the future and reveals the skill and great dedication that many press photographers have in their quest to bring to the public eye the events shape our world.

Well worth the effort to get along and have a look and it's free.
The exhibition starts on Saturday 30th June and runs until Sunday 22nd July 2018 at the Brisbane Powerhouse, 119 Lamington St New Farm.
