ongoing World Press Photo Contest 2022

The show

The GAM - Civic Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art of Turin will host, in Italian preview, this and the other winning photos from next 29 April until 18 September: the 66th edition of the World Press Photo Exhibition is organized for the sixth consecutive year in Turin (the last two editions in the Senate Hall of Palazzo Madama) thanks to the commitment of Cime, partner of the World Press Photo Foundation of Amsterdam and of the Torino Musei Foundation. The winning photos will be exhibited in the exhibition hall on the first floor.

 

The other winners

The "World Press Photo Story of the Year" award went to Matthew Abbott's "Saving the Forests with Fire", Australia, a work made for National Geographic / Panos Pictures. At the center of the story, a rite of the Australian natives who strategically burn the earth in a practice known as "cold combustion": the fires move slowly, burn only the undergrowth and remove the accumulation of plant residues that can fuel larger fires . The Nawarddeken people of West Arnhem Land, Australia have been practicing this practice for tens of thousands of years and see fire as a tool to manage their 1.39 million hectare homeland. Warddeken rangers combine traditional knowledge with contemporary technologies to prevent fires, thereby decreasing CO2 for global warming.

 

Winner of the "World Press Photo long-term project award", instead, "Amazonian dystopia" by Lalo de Almeida, Brazil, for Folha de São Paulo / Panos Pictures. It shows how the Amazon rainforest is severely threatened by deforestation, mining, infrastructure development and the exploitation of other natural resources. The "not very green" policies of President Jair Bolsonaro also weigh heavily.
