The best photojournalism from around the world comes to the State Library

One of Sydney’s most popular annual exhibitions, World Press Photo brings together the most astonishing, thought-provoking and often beautiful images published by photojournalists in the past year.

The images range from sports and nature photography to snapshots from the frontlines of war; from staged portraits to remarkable candid shots.

This exhibition features 150 winning images from the 59th World Press Photo – selected from 82,951 entries by 5,775 photographers from 128 countries.

The Photo of the Year winner is Australian freelance photographer Warren Richardson, for a photo taken at the border between Hungary and Serbia in August 2015, showing a migrant passing a baby under the barbed wire fence.
