World Press Photo 2012
See the world’s best photojournalism from 2011, selected from the 55th annual World Press Photo contest. The exhibition features over 200 powerful and evocative images by 57 photographers of 24 nationalities, including multi award-winning Australian sports photographer Adam Pretty.
The coveted World Press Photo of the Year was awarded to Spanish photographer Samuel Aranda for his arresting picture of a mother holding her wounded son inside a mosque being used as a temporary field hospital. The photo was taken following street demonstrations in Sanaa, Yemen against the rule of President Ali Abdulluh Saleh.
World Press Photo receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Canon. The exhibition has been brought to Sydney by Canon Australia.
