World Press Photo "People Power" Documenting protest since 1957

With the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands

Horikawa Oike Gallery

Founded in 1955, the World Press Photo Foundation aims to show the realities of events around the world. The WPPF holds an annual photography contest, and exhibits the prize-winning works at 120 venues around the world.
Over the years World Press Photo Contests have awarded many pictures of protest, starting with the photograph of Dorothy Counts, anti-corruption rallies in Lebanon, separatist demonstrations in Spain, pro-democracy marches in Hong Kong, citizens have mobilized to raise issues, defend their freedoms and secure their rights.
This exhibition not only proclaims "People Power" to the world but pays tribute to the photographers who portray these "now" moments around the globe.
