World Press Photographic Exhibition

Was a cold rainy day when we visited the World Press Photographic exhibition today. I probably should have realized that the depressing day outside would have been reflected by the imagery inside, based on mans disregard for each other and our propensity of enjoying seeing the misery of others.

Don't get me wrong, not all of the images were of war and natural disaster, however there was a significant percentage. The images of course were amazing and very sobering. I can't imagine what possess a photographer to want to go into these places to make images (though if you have not seen it, War Photograper does give some insight)

Well worth the $5 entry fee. On until 7/9/2011 at the Academy of Fine Arts
