World Press Photo Exhibition 2017 at the Durban Art Gallery – October 2017

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.
