Face Reality at World Press Barcelona 2013
November screams out one thing for us and that is World Press Photo. If you visited last year you would have seen the ever-changing and dark times of society through evocative photojournalism and this year visitors can expect to be confronted with images that portray the current reality of the planet, from an emotional standpoint. The slogan that features in the campaign for the exhibition is “Face Reality”, couldn’t be more fitting.
Censorship, is a big theme that is explored in the exhibition with us being faced with images “free of manipulation and censorship”. Taking part this year were 5,666 photographers (235 Spanish) of 124 nationalities, who submitted 103,481 images in eight categories: General News, Spot News, Contemporary Issues, Daily Life, Observed Portraits, Staged Portraits, Nature and Sport. The exhibition opens today and goes on until December 8 CCCB and is in fact the ninth edition.
