World Press Photo 2016

Photojournalism exhibition sponsored by the Illuminati. An amount of dead bodies that rival a Tarantino film. This year, a special focus on abused and exploited children. Refugees star without compensation. Liberal white guilt on display. Images are printed on foam cardboard giving no texture or sense of reality. Two personal projects about pregnancy feel like student works (probably related to members of the jury). Nothing memorable. Same as the junk on any newsfeed online. Avoid at all costs, unless you want to count dead bodies or abused children.

Most poignant picture would be the Lybian refugees on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea. The diversity of expressions in the black faces resonate deeply with the convoluted emotions of being in the world today: as a fleeing fugitive of disastrous conditions brought upon by destructive rich white men!
