See the Story

See the Story is a free publication that gives you the story on how you come to see the photographs and digital stories

It provides visitors to our exhibition and website with information on the visual world we all live in and the role of the World Press Photo Foundation in this visual world.

We detail how the stories on display were chosen, how the stories are made, and how they raise questions about important issues, including: What determines the meaning of a picture? How can complex issues be photographed? How can video give more understanding to an issue? Why is press freedom important?

See the Story is an interactive PDF that is free for you to download.
