Hot Art: Photojournalism in Focus

Corentin Fohlen’s photo of anti-government riots in Bangkok, Thailand (for FedePhoto)

OCTOBER 5 TO 26 The year 2010 was, like every year, filled with both triumph and turmoil. The World Cup of soccer, for example, captured the attention of billions, while flooding displaced more than a million people in Pakistan, and Haiti sought to recover from a devastating earthquake. Photojournalists captured the human angle of these events and many others, and their efforts are on display this month at the annual World Press Photo exhibition at Brookfield Place. Culled from thousands of submitted pictures, these most affecting images depict the joy and suffering that comes with our existence, helping us to see the world through a new lens.
