1-25 August 2018
The aftermath of an attack that shook the heart of London; a rioter on fire running from police in Venezuela; a young boy being pulled alive from rubble in Mosul and concertgoers hiding from a gunman at a country music festival in Las Vegas.
These are just some of the powerful images that will be on display in a free exhibition at the Scottish Parliament, as part of World Press Photo Exhibition 2018 from Wednesday 1 August – Saturday 25 August.
The travelling exhibition includes more than 100 award-winning photos from countries all around the world in what is truly a global exhibition of talents. The images depict stories from a range of categories including contemporary issues, sport, people and nature.
A new category for this year is the environment, to reflect the increasing number of photographs showing the impact of human behaviour on the planet.
