From 13 July to 4 August 2019, the World Press Photo Exhibition 2019 can be visited at the Nieuwe Kerk Zierikzee. The exhibition displays the winners of the annual photo competition, which means the best photos in visual journalism of 2018.
Some of the images from the World Press Photo competition have become iconic: the naked girl running from a napalm attack in Vietnam; the Buddhist monk setting himself on fire; the lonely demonstrator facing down a row of tanks on Tiananmen Square. Other photographs have established trends and set the standard for styles of press photography.
