WORLD PRESS PHOTO 2019 OPENING

OPENINGWPP2019_087

Since 1955 the World Press Photo Contest
 recognizes professional photographers
for the best pictures contributing to visual journalism.
And through the words of WPP exhibition manager and curator,
Sanne Schim van der Loeff,
this year once more the World Press Photo Awards remind us
that there is not just one truth, and often pictures can proof it.
This year, for the 62nd edition, the independent jury in Amsterdam overviewed 78,801 images
by 4,738 photographers from 129 Countries.

WORLD PRESS PHOTO EXHIBITION 2019

A two-year-old Honduran asylum seeker cries as her mother is searched and detained near the U.S.-Mexico border on June 12, 2018 in McAllen, Texas. They had rafted across the Rio Grande from Mexico and were detained by U.S. Border Patrol agents before being sent to a processing center. The following week the Trump administration, under pressure from the public and lawmakers, ended its contraversial policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. Although the child and her mother remained together, they were sent to a series of detention facilities before being released weeks later, pending a future asylum hearing.
