Pietro Masturzo's World Press Photo of the Tear captures unrest in Iran

OCTOBER 6 TO 28 In today’s fast-paced news environment, events are reported feverishly, but tend to fall off the public radar just as quickly. The annual World Press Photo exhibit helps to remind us of these important political struggles, natural disasters, sporting achievements and much more. Featuring 167 award-winning photos, the display at Brookfield Place’s Allen Lambert Galleria illuminates the most significant happenings of the past year, including the dramatic uprising following Iran’s disputed elections, as captured by Italian photographer Pietro Masturzo’s World Press Photo of the Year. In all, these images comprise an arresting archive of contemporary history and a tribute to the efforts of the best photojournalists in the international press corps.
