The end of Europe’s geopolitical division transformed world history while the digitalization of photojournalism expanded its power. This special exhibition takes us back in time, showcasing 30 iconic images from 30 years of the World Press Photo contest. With exclusive behind-the-scenes information, the exhibition highlights how the images became iconic of the times they represented.
