The Press Photo Exhibition – Galway

After arriving in Galway shortly after 1pm on Saturday I wandered around the touristy spots of the city for an hour until joined by Niall, Daniel and Kevin in the local shopping centre where the World Press Photography Exhibition was displayed as I previously mentioned.
The exhibition was great! Photos(which you can see online too) were stunning and thought provoking, especially images of war-torn parts of the world. The photos were mounted on panels and set in the public walk ways between shops. Each panel had a short description and background information and while we were there large crowds huddled around all of them. I didn’t know there’d be nature and sports images on display but my favourite of the nature shots has to be this stunning photo of Chicago from Lake Michigan. The web version doesn’t do it justice as the image on display was so big!
