WHAT:       The best in international photo-journalism comes to DC !
     Every year, for nearly 60 years, 4million people in 100 cities have enjoyed the larger than life exhibition from award-winning photographers! See these thought-provoking and heart-warming photos from the world’s best photographers, including winners from the Washington Post and National Geo, for only the second time in Washington, DC.
   The goal is simple– to tell the stories behind the photos and encourage a deeper understanding of current events around the globe.  The exhibition covers a broad range of issues from the Rohingya crisis to Middle East conflicts, from elephant conservation in Kenya and marathons in the Moroccan dessert to the impact of climate change, etc.
     Unique to DC, photos are projected Billboard size using 22 projectors along the walls of the Dupont Underground.  A stunning retrospective of all 61 years of Photos of the Year, exhibitions by the International Women’s Media Foundation, the work of Agence France Presse photojournalist, Shah Marai, who lost his life in Afghanistan earlier this year, the African Photojournalism Database photographers, and Washington Post digital media story “Sin Luz” on the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. will be displayed side-by-side.
