World Press Photo 2023

2023 Photo Contest, World Press Photo of the Year – Mariupol Maternity Hospital Airstrike, photographer Evgeniy Maloletka

Toronto. Thanks to our friends at WestLicht Museum for Photography in Vienna, we learned that they will be exhibiting the WPP 2023 photographs from this September 15 to November 12, 2023.

The winning photograph this year was taken in the Ukraine by Evgeniy Maloletka during a devastating Russian attack on a maternity hospital in Mariupol. The unprovoked attack and the war on the Ukraine by Russia (started over a year ago) has galvanized support for the Ukraine. It is truly difficult to find any sympathy for Mr Putin (or the mercenary soldiers he hired) these days.

We were favoured on October 18, 2006, when Ms Leslie Sparks of CONTACT gave us an inspiring talk and display on the World Press program and its annual exhibition of top photographs by photo journalists world wide.

As part of the show’s world tour, it will appear in Toronto at the Allen Lambert Galleria, from  02 October 2023 to  27 October 2023. If you can’t visit the display here, in Austria, or at a locale closer to you on its world tour, please visit Westlicht’s Exhibition on line (the facility re-opens September 15, 2023).
