This past Saturday I spent a day at the Durban Art Gallery conducting tours of the World Press Photo Exhibition 2017. Participants included members of various camera clubs in the wider Durban area and professional commercial and documentary photographers. The Exhibition was opened last week and is expected to remain in place until at least the end of October when it will be shipped to Kenya to be exhibited on the street in downtown Nairobi.
Sponsorship by the World Press Photo Foundation and Africa Media Online means that entrance is free of charge. All are welcome. The Exhibition is an important educational opportunity for school groups. World Press Photo have produced educational materials relating to the Exhibition that can be downloaded here.
The Exhibition can be viewed at:

Thank you to Harry Lock and Emil von Maltitz for the photographs of the event and to Vanessa Cracknell and Heinz Benecke for organising such enthusiastic groups.
