This morning I had spend what seemed like a few minutes and was really oer an hour looking through images, that are listed on Wordl Press Photo Winners 2009 gallery.
World Press Photo. It is not only annual exhibition of best or most touching press photography. It’s organization supporting and promoting photojournalism.
This year edition of WPP exhibition, in their winner gallery you will find images showing life, reality, sometimes unfortunately harsh and difficult to accept. Real people, real situation. Many of exhibited work refers to most recent events around the world. Many of them related to ongoing conflicts, weather disasters, some not as sad- like photos from last Olympics, presidential campaign in US.
I regret, that again I will not be able to visit the actual exhibition. Few times I went to World Press Photo exhibition and it was very touching and strong experience for me. It seems to em, that looking at actual print, many times sizes bigger than than standard, showing more details, letting you almost “touch” whatever is on given print…
Looking at those photos I kept thinking- how much more single photo can tell. All those events documented by photojournalists have been announced through TV,newspapers, radio. Many words were said. But picture still can give deeper and more emotional presentation.
The whole exhibition is really amazing. Some pictures very painful.
Let me also share some of my favorites.

I have to call the Town & Country exhibition very succesful for me.
Like i mentioned in previous post- it was one of the bigger events for me, definitely exposure for my work.
Just being chosen was first nice part. And on Saturday I have received a phone call, that Magnolia has been purchased. Which of course was the main purpose of this specific exhibition, since part of the revenue goes to support the Junior League of Raleigh.
I am very happy. And definitely should mention, that I really have to send Thank You note to my great friend, JP Corr III, who was very supportive, helpful and most of all so patient with all my little questions!
Raleigh NC, Oct 1-5, 2008
The Junior League of Raleigh and Visual Art Exchange have organized art exhibition “Town &Country”. The exhibition is taking place during Junior League of Raleigh’s 2008 Shopping Spree.
The event is taking place at Raleigh Convention Center on 2 E South St starting October
1st until October 5th.
The piece that I have submitted is one of my favorite ones. Taken at Sarah P. Duke Gardens of this beautiful and bold magnolia flower. Printed on metallic gold photographic paper looks very warm, gold-of course and magic in it’s own way.
Wish me luck!
This is my first bigger event, where one of my pieces is being displayed for wider audience and judged by professionals.
