THE REALITY THROUGH THE IMAGE: WORLD PRESS PHOTO
After the Van Gogh Alive – The Experience, the suggestive Teatro Margherita di Bari will host a new cultural event: the World Press Photo, defined as the most important exhibition in the world of photojournalism (from www.worldpressphotobari.it) that you will be able to appreciate from 17/05 to 23/06.
The Dutch World Press Photo Foundation, founded in 1955, has organized this exceptional exhibition that expresses the primary need to protect the right to information and truth.
In an era dominated by fake news, telling the truth through authentic images can guarantee the certainty and the authenticity of the transmission of what is real.
The Bari stage is part of a world tour that was born in Amsterdam, home of the foundation. In addition to Bari, the exhibition will involve a hundred of other cities around the world.
The photos concern many categories such as news, immigration, environment, nature and sport. In particular the exhibition will host the section dedicated to the competition digital storytelling (from www.worldpressphotobari.it). This will give the possibility, to those who want to visit the exhibition, to admire the digital works realized with the contribution of video.
