World Press Photo 14

Last Saturday I visited the World Press Photo exhibition at the 15th century Nieuwe Kerk ('New Church'), at the Dam square in Amsterdam. The exhibition features over 150 remarkable photographs in 9 categories.
Somehow the setting of a church adds so much to this photo exhibition, like the Der-Aa Church in Groningen that hosted the WPP last November. (click HERE to see a few images from my visit there).
If you happen to be in Amsterdam, it's recommendable.

2 opmerkingen:

  1. I'm thinking I might pop downtown today to see a photo exhibit at the National Gallery of Art. But, you're right, the atmospherics won't be anything so nice as this church's.

  2. My dad has mentioned this church many a time- my parents are both from the Netherlands. He'd recognize this immediately. It's a beautiful setting for such an exhibition.


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
