World Press Photo Exhibition

Yesterday I went with some friends to the World Press Photo exhibition that is currently showing in Wellington.

There are some very moving photos from current events of the last year. Some are sombre, as human tragedy is the pulse of current affairs. However, some are simply of the notable, like some brilliant sport photos.

The photo which struck us most is #115. We were struck by the incongruence of the girl laughing with a corpse at her feet. There is obviously a story there. Is it simply that life is so cheap in the slums? Or is there something going on that is more specific to that time & place?

The exhibition is well worth the $2 entry. I encourage you to go if you are in Wellington soon.
