World Press Photo | Resilience: Stories of Women Inspiring Change - Εικόνα

The exhibition is a collection of World Press Photo awarded photographs, dedicated to the issues concerning the position of women in the modern world. Exploring the educational, social and professional inequalities and constraints faced by women in many regions of the world in the 21st century, the photographs of the exhibition are a visual testimony and a record of either the challenges women encounter or their struggle for fairer treatment, equality and more opportunities. 

It comprises a selection of photographs by 17 photographers from 13 different countries who have been awarded in the World Press Photo international contest from 2000 to 2021 and exhibited in its subsequent exhibitions. Those are: Forough Alaei (Iran), Jonathan Bachman (USA), Daniel Berehulak (Australia), Anna Boyiazis (USA), Fulvio Bugani (Italy), Maika Elan (Vietnam), Jan Grarup (Denmark), Terrell Groggins (USA). ), Robin Hammond (New Zealand), Olivia Harris (United Kingdom), Heba Khamis (Egypt), Diana Markosian (USA), Catalina Martin-Chico (France/Spain), Finbarr O’ Reilly (Canada), Pablo Tosco (Argentina), Magnus Wennman (Sweden) and Irina Werning (Argentina).

At the same time, the exhibition demonstrates the power of the image to record contemporary social issues, its contribution to informing, awakening and activating individuals and societies, as well as the special relationship that is built between the photographer and the subject so that the result is an important “statement” for both.

The exhibition is presented in Greece by initiative of the Embassy of the Netherlands in collaboration with the World Press Photo Foundation and Athens Photo World
