#53 World Press Photo Exhibition 2017

In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”— Alfred Stieglitz

Today’s new thing was a visit with a friend to see the World Press Photo Exhibition 2017.

The exhibition – which is currently in Auckland – displayed photos highlighting current affairs issues from around the world, most notably the war in Syria and the refugee crisis.

I found this extremely moving, and as could have been predicted, I shed a few tears. I would highly recommend this exhibition (which finishes in Auckland on 30th July), but I left with a deep sadness at how awful human beings are to one another and to the planet, and how powerless I felt at not being able to alleviate some of that suffering.

More information about the exhibition and tickets can be found at on the event website.
