Capturing some of the most memorable moments of 2014, this hard-hitting photo exhibition is back in Barcelona for another year as part of its world tour. Founded in 1955, World Press Photo aims to use photojournalism to provide a deeper understanding of the world around us, and the annual press photography contest has become the most prestigious of its kind. Categories include nature, sports and contemporary issues, allowing for a diverse range of subjects and photographic themes. 2014 saw a crisis in the Mediterranean, as refugees fled war torn countries; increasing persecution of the LGBT community in Russia; and an Ebola outbreak. All of these moments are captured on film and presented in this moving, and at times shocking, exhibition. A must-see for its portrayal of the world which can be both beautiful and brutally honest.
Opening times of the venue are: Tuesday to thursday from 11am until 8pm; Fridays from 11am until 9pm; Saturdays and Sundays from 10am until 9pm.
Tickets can be purchased at the CCCB Ticket Office. More information here.
