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, 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.


Three of the exhibited photographers, Fethi Sahraoui (Algeria), Ngadi Smart (Sierra Leone), and Gulshan Khan (South Africa), will be present at Photoville from 12 - 16 September. Join the public 'meet and greet' sessions at the exhibition to hear more about the photographers and their stories: 


Friday 14th September from 6pm to 8pm
Saturday 15th from 3pm to 5pm


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.

Explore: The Ethical Image


The Ethical Image: Challenges in Visualising a Changing World
The University of Hong Kong
6 October 2018

This event is organised by the World Press Photo Foundation ‘Explore’ program, the Journalism and Media Studies Centre of the University of Hong Kong, and Rights Exposure. It is supported by the WYNG Media Award (WMA) the Google News Initiative.

Topic and program
The visual representation of critical and global issues is both necessary and ubiquitous. Visual representation both calls attention to problems and frames possible solutions. More people than ever before have the capacity to produce, share and receive images of important issues affecting our world today, be they human rights abuses, the degradation of the environment, or economic inequality. The proliferation of images not only raises urgent questions on the ethics of creating and disseminating photos of those impacted by these issues but also requires us to re-appraise whether past critiques and responses are still appropriate and effective in our 24/7 digital world.

This conference will bring together leading experts from Asia and beyond working in academia, the media and the NGO community to discuss the ethical challenges faced by those who create, publish and use images in the course of their daily work, with the Rohingya crisis being the main case study.

Over a single day, three panels will be convened. The program and list of participants is as follows:

Panel 1: The Ethical Image: Challenges in Visualising a Changing World
David Campbell, World Press Photo Foundation - Moderator
Julia Chiung-wen Hsu, Country Contact, Chinese-Speaking Network, Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma
Iain Martin, News Editor (Asia), Storyful

Panel 2: The Ethics and Politics of Representing the Rohingya Crisis
Aunohita Mojumdar, Editor, Himal Southasian - Moderator
Patrick Brown, Photographer, Panos Pictures
Hannah McKay, Photographer, Reuters
Minzayar Oo, Photographer, Panos Pictures
Matthew Smith, Founder and CEO, Fortify Rights

Panel 3: How to Produce and Use Images Ethically
Robert Godden, Rights Exposure - Moderator
Aarti Kapoor, Managing Director and Lead Consultant, Embode
Jessica Lim, Director, Angkor Photo Festival and Workshops
Jennifer Pritheeva Samuel, Photo Editor, National Geographic
Stanley So, Education Manager, Oxfam Hong Kong

The Way Forward - Building Practical Solutions:

David Campbell, Director of Communications and Engagement, World Press Photo Foundation
Robert Godden, Director of Campaigns and Communications, Rights Exposure
Aunohita Mojumdar, Editor, Himal Southasian
Eric Wishart, Special Editorial Projects, Agence France-Presse

The outcome from each panel will be a two-page compilation of the insights provided by the panelists, including concrete suggestions for solutions and sharing of best practice. The conference will be filmed and made available online in order to be accessible to as wide an audience as possible.

The conference is free and tickets are limited. Register here to attend.
