After Sydney, Rome, Amsterdam, Berlin and Kyoto, it is Santiago's turn to welcome the exhibition of awarded photographs by the famous World Press Photo, which consecrates the best photojournalistic works of the year. In the contemporary setting of Espacio Fundación Telefónica, you will discover powerful and sometimes shocking images, telling 2015 in pictures, a year especially marked by the refugee crisis in Europe.
Picture of the year is a black & white shot by Australian Warren Richardson showing a man at a border holding a baby through barbwires. Beyond the information they provide, these images have an aesthetic that anchors them in the collective memory.
