World Press Photo 2006 in Prague

Karolinum in Prague city center As in many many towns around the world (90 towns in 40 countries), people in Prague are also in the position to visit World Press Photo 2006 exhibition, which is still open until October 1. A large collection of professional photography is ready to remind us the key events that happened throughout the year.

The exhibition is opened daily from 10 to 18 in Karolinum, Ovocny trh 3 (Next to the Estates Theatre) and the entrance is 90 CZK for adults, 50 CZK for students (these discounts are one of the things why I enjoy being a student).

Czech photographer Michal Novotny has achieved big success, being third in category daily life, for his series of photographs about blind people in Liberia (I liked the first one that showed part of the old African man’s face with a blind eye). Canadian Finbarr O’Reilly is the author of the winning picture, which shows fingers of a kid touching his mother’s lips. The chairman of the jury described the winning image as: “...This image has everything – beauty, horror and despair. It is simple, elegant and moving.”
