Through the 15th of September, World Press Photo Foundation and the Caen Memorial will host a unique exhibition to mark the occasion of the Caen Mémorial’s 30th anniversary. For the first time, the World Press Photo of the Year winners from the last 30 years are being presented together in one exhibition.
Each year for over 60 years, the World Press Photo Foundation has organized a prestigious professional photography contest, which rewards the best images by photographers from around the world. The competition awards the work of professionals who use their creativity and talent to represent an event or topic that has marked the journalistic news of the year.
The world and photojournalism have undergone profound changes since the fall of the Berlin Wall. The end of Europe’s geopolitical division transformed world history while the digitalization of photojournalism expanded its power. This special exhibition takes us back in time, showcasing 30 iconic images from 30 years of the World Press Photo contest. With exclusive behind-the-scenes information, the exhibition highlights how the images became iconic of the times they represented.
