In an ever more visual society, how can we understand the levels of meaning, the underlying story lines and the various agendas reflected in the news pictures of the day?
We live in an increasingly (digital) visual age where new developments in the media and technology have transformed journalism and storytelling. But how images are read and understood is still open to much debate. In this lecture, we explore the aesthetics, power and impact of photography through the powerful images of World Press Photo winners.
Shocking, horrifying, beautiful, and breath-taking. The World Press Photo exhibition reaches 4 million people in 100 cities and 45 countries globally and shows the most exceptional and intriguing press photos of the year. Now the exhibition lands on the TU/e campus. Visit the exhibition that confronts you, introduces you to stories you never heard before, and challenges you to keep looking. Go to the item on the exhibition to read more about it.
