I was disappointed that we didn’t have enough time in Sydney last weekend to visit the World Press Photo 08 collection at the State Library of NSW. I was really excited then yesterday, when flipping through the Brisbane Powerhouse booklet, to see that it’s on display here next month.
If you haven’t seen a World Press Photo collection before you really should this year. There’s no excuse not to, it’s on from 12-30 June 2008 and it’s free.
You can get a taste of things to come at the World Press Photo site, but I must warn you that viewing the site’s tiny images on a potentially uncalibrated, slightly dirty computer screen is nothing like seeing them in real life.
