The World Press Photo Foundation will be at the 7th annual PHOTOVILLE in Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City with the exhibition, ‘Foreseen: New Narratives from the African Photojournalism Database’.

PHOTOVILLE, New York City’s premier photo festival, is a modular event built out of shipping containers, combining over 85 indoor and outdoor exhibitions, talks, workshops, a beer garden, and night-time screenings in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Find out more about the program here.

The exhibition showcases the work of African visual storytellers selected from the African Photojournalism Database (APJD). A joint project of the World Press Photo Foundation and Everyday Africa, the African Photojournalism Database is a directory of over 350 African emerging and professional African visual journalists from over 35 different countries across the continent. Offering reimagined visual narratives from across the African continent, ‘Foreseen’ explores themes such as tradition, religion, identity, history, memory and daily life. This collection of work celebrates a new generation of photographers who are redefining what should be seen, and how, through the stories that matter to them.

‘Foreseen’ will spotlight the work of APJD members from across Africa: exhibited photographers include Hilina Abebe, Gulshan Khan, Robert Nzaou-Kissolo, Ayobami Ogungbe, Fethi Sahraoui and Ngadi Smart; and the featured photographers include Daouda Corera, Yagazie Emezi, Dania Hany, Leke Alabi-Isama, Rahima Gambo, Bassam Ihab, Yoriyas Yassine Alaoui Ismaili, Mahmoud Khattab, Jacques Nkinzingabo, Donwilson Odhiambo, Brian Otieno, Mustafa Saeed, Sarah Waiswa, Biko Wesa, John Wessels, and Jodi Windvogel.

This is an expanded version of the APJD exhibition at LUMIX Festival for Young Photojournalism, Hanover, Germany earlier this year, as part of a continued effort to support and develop opportunities for the members of APJD.

This special exhibition showcases award-winning photography from the World Press Photo Contests 2016 - 2018 that portrays our natural world and human impact on the environment. All visitors can see the exhibition for free at the Scheepvaart Museum's Open Pleyn courtyard.

The annual World Press Photo Contest rewards photographers for the best single exposure pictures contributing to the past year of visual journalism. Whether entered as singles or stories in one of the eight categories, an independent jury of professionals judges the photographs in terms of their accurate, fair, and visually compelling insights about our world.

The Nature category is for imagery showing flora, fauna, and landscapes in their natural state. In 2018, recognizing the importance of ecological issues, the World Press Photo Foundation introduced the Environment category for work documenting human impact, positive or negative, on the environment.

Announcing the six selected talents from Europe in the third edition of the 6x6 Global Talent Program

The 6x6 Global Talent Program spotlights six talents, from six global regions, in a rolling process of nomination and selection.

By connecting under-recognized visual storytellers to a global audience, the initiative aims to encourage diverse accounts of the world that present stories with different perspectives.

Now halfway through its first cycle, with three of the six global regions’ talents announced, the 6x6 Program will present work by the six European talents at LUMIX Festival for Young Photojournalism in Hannover, Germany from 20 - 24 June. This first exhibition of the 6x6 Program will showcase a selection from the portfolios of each of the 18 selected talents announced so far. This is part of a continued effort to support and develop opportunities for the 6x6 talents.

Nominations for visual storytellers from the global region of Europe were made by our growing community of over 100 global nominators. The following six talented visual storytellers from Europe were selected from more than 95 nominations:

With Lars Boering, Managing Director of the World Press Photo Foundation, as chair, the online selection committee comprised of:

On nominating Álvaro Laiz, Ruth Eichhorn, Germany, freelance photo editor and curator said: 

“Álvaro Laiz has found his unique way of expressing himself by concentrating on the complex relationship between man and nature, shifting between conflict and fascination. He tries to focus on realities that are usually ignored by the mass media. Every image is like a poem with a structure, and just like a poem, his images compress an emotional experience.”

On nominating Ann Sophie Lindström, Uwe H. Martin, Germany, photographer and producer Bombay Flying Club said: 

“Ann Sophie Lindström is one of the most interesting upcoming visual storytellers today, whose projects bridge photography and moving image documentary. Her current film, ‘The Bitter with the Sweet’, takes the intimacy, obvious in all of Ann Sophie's work, to the next level.”

On nominating Emile Ducke, Ruth Eichhorn, Germany, freelance photo editor and curator said: 

“Emile Ducke’s innovative, exciting use of photography is surprising and genuine. He often works with a middle format camera and waits for the right situation to develop, making his photographs compellingly intimate.”

On nominating Esa Ylijaasko, - Sebastián Liste, Spain, photographer said: 

“When I first met Esa Ylijaasko, I realized immediately that he had a different voice, a unique way of seeing the world and telling stories with images. The perseverance, patience and tenderness of his approach are rare gems in this industry, and he is devoted to continuing to do it.”

On nominating Marie Hald, Søren Pagter, Denmark, photojournalism department head The Danish School of Media and Journalism said: 

“Marie Hald is working thoroughly with projects about women and their relationship to beauty and the female body. Her work is very intimate and personal, both with reportage stories and portraits. Even though she has received prizes and her work has been published and exhibited, she deserves a larger recognition for her work focusing on important gender issues.”

On nominating Santi Palacios, Daniel Ochoa de Olza, Spain, photographer said: 

“Santi Palacios’ commitment to his work - to the story of migration - is something rarely seen. He has been constantly on the field during the past years producing a stunning body of work, both visually and journastically. The combinations of investigation, his sociological background, field work, visual skills, global perspective and commitment has made of him one of the best European photojournalists to watch.”

In addition to the exhibition, the work of the six talents will also be published and shared on the World Press Photo Foundation’s platforms, including an individual feature on Witness for each of the talents.

See the results of the South America edition announced in March 2018, as well as the 6x6 Program’s inaugural edition in Southeast Asia and Oceania announced in November 2017.

6x6 Global Talent Program: Africa

The next edition of the 6x6 Global Talent Program, Africa, will open for nominations by the end of June.

World Press Photo is actively seeking suggestions or applications for nominators. To apply to be a global nominator, and for all questions about the program, please contact Thera Vermeij, 6x6 Global Talent Program Project Manager, at
