World Press Photo Exhibition 2019 - (December 5th)

All Ages
Join us for the World Press Photo Exhibition 2019, displaying the most powerful and thought-provoking press photography of the previous year

The powerful World Press Photo Exhibition represents the best visual journalism of the past year. It is seen by 4 million people in 100 major cities across the globe. This is photojournalism at its best and most thought-provoking.

Images explore a wide range of topics including everything from migration and press freedom to diplomacy and gender identity, from conflict to fashion and Paralympic sports to climate change.

The exhibition will be on display at the Dupont Underground, a massive abandoned trolley station under Dupont Circle. It houses 21 projectors casting 13' images of the year's most important stories, a wall of large prints of WPP prize-winning photographs and a retrospective of over 60 years of Photos of the Year.
