From 30 October 2021 to 30 December 2021, La Cit Miroir in Liège welcomes the winners of the World Press Photo Prize 2021, which highlights the best photos of 2020, at the invitation of the non-profit organization Territoires de la Mémoire. This annual photojournalism competition rewards professional photographers for their best photos and for their contribution to photojournalism. Both impressive and compelling, the 150 photos presented give us a snapshot of the world as it is.
The photos presented for this new edition delve into the heart of current events such as the covid-19 pandemic, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict or the Black Lives Matter protests. But it also shows us some contemporary realities about lifestyles and cultures in the world, our environment and even our societies. These images tell us poignant stories where life is sometimes tragic and frightening, but also full of hope, compassion and humanity.
