World Press Exhibition @IHECS
The exhibition, organised by World Press, is a recent, award-winning photo exhibition that is shown around the world in nearly 100 cities and 45 countries, reaching nearly four million people each year. It is a major event for the IHECS to welcome such an exhibition on-site.
This presentation will begin with a historical introduction to photojournalism and consider the power of photography through emblematic examples from the World Press Photo Archives. It will continue with an explanation of the use of visual language with references to Christian iconography and visual motifs that come up again and again. After this introduction of traditional photojournalism, the presentation will look at a few examples of new ways of telling stories and reaching audiences. It will also examine the question of journalistic independence in this context. The final part of the presentation will be adapted to the local context and/or the audience's subject of study.
