For the seventh year running, Photographic Social Vision is organizing the international World Press Photo exhibition. This year, the show that brings together the 170 winning photographs in the prestigious international photojournalism contest has recognised three Spanish photographers and two projects related to the Internet and social networks.
Photographic Social Vision presents the World Press Photo exhibition to the Barcelona public for the seventh year running. This travelling show, hosted by the Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB) is known worldwide as the foremost exhibition in the field of photojournalism for the quality of its works, and for the debate and criticism generated by the photos presented. It is a meeting with the social, political, cultural and sports events of the past year, as well as a showcase for the best photo reporters of the moment, offering them the chance to show work that is often censored by governments and the media.
With the title Seeing is Believing, Photographic Social Vision invites visitors to reflect on the importance and the role of documentary photography today, as the last redoubt of truth in the extensive range of deliberately manipulated messages and images we consume every day. The contents of World Press Photo are a thermometer of the world social context and help to shape public awareness and historic memory.
This year's winning photograph, by South African Jodi Bieber, immortalizes Bibi Aisha, an 18-year-old Afghani girl who was mutilated as a punishment for fleeing her husband's house in Oruzgan province, in the centre of Afghanistan.
