The year in photographs

1 Oct

Last weekend, I went to see the World Press Photo exhibition at Marché Bonsecours in Montreal. It was an opportunity to admire and understand via pictures the events and issues that shaped the previous year. The photographs selected by the jury were stunning! If you don’t get the chance to see the exhibition in your city, you can check out all the winning images at World Press Photo.

Also, in the same room, was another photo exhibition called AnthropoGraphia which gathered a selection of the best photo-documentaries of the world’s most prestigious agencies. You can also see the images online at AnthropoGraphia.
