The World Press Photo Exhibition showcases the best photojournalism and documentary photography of the last year. Accurate, diverse, high-quality visual stories benefit the world by creating mutual understanding. Explore some of the most pressing issues facing the world today: from the devastating documentation of the war in Ukraine and historic protests in Iran, to the realities in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, and the many faces of the climate crisis in countries ranging from Morocco to Peru to Kazakhstan.
