If you like art and photography, mark your calendars now.
The globally renown World Press Photo is coming to Buenos Aires.
WPP organizes “the world’s largest and most prestigious annual press photography contest. Prize-winning photographs are assembled into a traveling exhibition that is visited by over two million people in some 45 countries worldwide. A yearbook presenting all prize-winning entries is published annually in six languages.”
Last year’s winner of the WPP’s 52nd annual Photo of the Year prize was a black-and-white photo by American photographer Anthony Suau.
International jury chair Mary Anne Golon said this about the image:
“The strength of the picture is in its opposites. It’s a double entendre. It looks like a classic conflict photograph, but it is simply the eviction of people from a house following foreclosure. Now war in its classic sense is coming into people’s houses because they can’t pay their mortgages.”
