The Photographic Social Vision foundation is organising the most internationally recognized photojournalism exhibition for the sixteenth time, it includes the winning photos from the photography and digital narrative competition World Press Photo.
As has become customary, the exhibition presents all the winning photographs and multimedia pieces, most of them unpublished in our country and that have been selected for their visual quality and for offering different perspectives of our global news. What’s more, this year, three Spanish photographers are among the winners: Ricard García Vilanova and Ramón Espinosa from Barcelona, and Antonio Pizarro Rodríguez from Seville.
This year, due to the pandemic, they have created guided visits online via Filmin (free access for subscribers and for hire for non-subscribers to this platform) and a number of diverse exclusive contents via the World Press Photo Barcelona web.
An exhibition that can’t be missed considering that, this year, reality has been stranger than fiction, and that it has often seemed like something straight out of an episode of Black Mirror…
