World Press Photo 09

2 Dec

For the fifth consecutive year, Photographic Social Vision Foundation, in collaboration with the CCCB, presents World Press Photo 09.

The World Press Photo exhibition – a collection of the winning entries in the World Press Photo Competition – is internationally recognised as the most important touring exhibition of photojournalism in the world. As well as displaying the best photographs of 2008, it is also a historic document of the main news events of the year.

Each year, an independent, thirteen-member international jury chooses the winning photographs from submissions by photojournalists, agencies, newspapers and photographers around the world. The photos compete in 11 categories: news events, current affairs, people in the news, sports, action photography, sports reportage, contemporary issues, daily life, portraits, nature and art and entertainment.

The winning photographs are exhibited annually in 80 cities in 40 countries, on condition that all works have to be shown without censorship of any kind. The fact that thousands of visitors from around the world see this exhibition shows photography’s power to overcome linguistic and cultural boundaries.

World Press Photo provides images that become part of the collective memory. Stunning images that have changed, on many occasions, the course of history and public opinion.

Los Vivancos Take Center Stage At The Victoria Theatre

2 Dec

The new Vivanco show has opened up in Barcelona and is currently the talk of the town. A  group made up of seven brothers have taken the Barcelona stage for a limited run at the Victoria Theater.

For those of you who never heard of Los Vivanco they are a tribe of  39 kids. 7 of which are superstars. All of which share the same father. Part Flamenco show part concert- each brother plays an instrument and can dance a variety of styles from Flamenco to Classical and even some breakdancing.  The show does not stop as the brothers bring the passion to stage and battle it out for the audience’s attention.
