World Press Photo 2008, Oude Kerk, Amsterdam, The Netherlands - feature photo

Just a real quick post to say we went to the World Press Photo exhibition at the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.

“First and foremost, World Press Photo is known for organizing the world’s largest and most prestigious annual press photography contest. Prizewinning photographs are assembled into a traveling exhibition that is visited by over two million people in some 45 countries worldwide. A yearbook presenting all prizewinning entries is published annually in six languages.”

Oude Kerk means old church, it’s the oldest church in Amsterdam. Obviously quite a creative name 😉

The exhibition was great, what was even better was to see photos which weren’t perfect, but were technically bad, but showing meaning and making you think about the situation.
