EXHIBITION WORLD PRESS PHOTO 2017 –
By Bernard Bujold –
The 2017 edition of WORLD PRESS PHOTO, the 12th edition, presented in Montréal is very well done and one can appreciate several very exceptional photographs.
I personally loved two photographers: Burhan Özbilici, author of the famous photo of the shooter in Turkey who had murdered the Russian ambassador at the inauguration of an art exhibition; and Alberta Canadian photographer Amber Bracken, whose photographs of his excellent story on the mobilization of a Sioux reserve in US North Dakota.
Photographer Özbilici explained at the inauguration how he felt during the shooting and despite a deep fear, he did not panic and he had the reflex to do his work of press photographer and capture tragic images of the event.
A lighter moment of the inauguration at the Montreal exhibition was to see the two winners photographers, Burhan Özbilici and Amber Bracken, discussing the techniques of photography…
The WORLD PRESS PHOTO 2017 exhibition will be held at the Marché Bonsecours from August 30 to 1 October.
An exhibition that must be seen!
