World Press Photo at Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome

The world’s most popular traveling photo exhibition

The World Press Photo exhibition is on this May after over 60 years in action and will be presented at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni. It will display 45 photos from all over the world chosen from one of the most highly competitive photojournalism competitions to which over 5000 submissions have been made.

Included in the photos on display is the selected World Press Photo of the Year 2016 by Burhan Ozbilici. This particular shot depicts the assassination of Turkey’s Ambassador to Russia at the opening of an art exhibition in Ankara. The killer, Melvut Mert Altintas, a young Turkish policeman, had also injured a few others before he was shot down.

The show is inspiring in its re-contextualization of journalistic images within an artistic setting.
