YOUNG SYRIAN PHOTOGRAPHERS AT THE WORLD PRESS PHOTO 2017 –
By Bernard Bujold-
It is a very small exhibition on the sidelines of the WORLD PRESS PHOTO 2017 exhibition, but in a sense, this presentation reflects what photography is really about.
Personally I did not stop at this secondary exhibition on my first visit to World Press Photo 2017 and I had to go back to see it.
The photos were made by twelve Syrian teenagers who arrived recently in Quebec.
Several conclusions can be drawn from these photographs.
Mine is that photography is universal and that the final image does not change according to the nationality of the photographer but rather only according to the landscape that is proposed to him. If the pictures of the young Syrians are presented with little means and in a small back room, the visual quality of these images has nothing to envy to the photographs by the professionals who are exhibited in the main hall and who have won prizes excellence.
Conclusion: “PHOTOGRAPHY is a unifying force for the nations of the world!”
