World Press Photo @ Holyrood

Went along to the exhibition of the World Press Photo winners at the Scottish Parliament (Showing until 28th August).  Fantastic rearticulation of the power, immediacy and relevance of photojournalism in the world today.  So many amazing images which assault, challenge and ultimately inspire the viewer.

There were too many astounding pictures to do justice to in a single post, perhaps more will follow, but the picture below screams Don Delillo, as though his fictional oeuvre has been crystallised in one specific moment in “real” time and space.  Absolutely uncanny resemblance to his writing, mediated in the singularity of the visual text.

Anyone not in Edinburgh can see the gallery of winners here
