Day 175 – A game of two halves

Went to the World Press Photo Awards Exhibition today and thought it was fantastic, way better than last years. Now maybe that’s because I have more knowledge about photojournalism since last year, or because the crowds weren’t as big and claustrophobic but some of the photos were really inspiring. Some more were really disturbing but I still feel they have a place in such an exhibition. One in particular stands out which was a closeup of a dead American soldier in her coffin. Such a simple photo but so powerful.

Another exhibition which was on in the same place was photos from Sydney Morning Herald photographers. Some pretty good photos in that too but also some fantastic quotes and presentation. It made me see even clearer how better I could’ve edited my recent AFL project.
