EOS Festival of Photography

Over the weekend I visited a couple of exhibitions which are part of Canon’s EOS Festival of Photography currently running in Sydney. Firstly, ‘Photos 1440‘ is an exhibition of images taken by Sydney Morning Herald photographers. 1440 represents the number of minutes in a day, though I’m pretty certain there aren’t that many images on display. A slideshow with a selection of images can be seen on the SMH site. Here’s one of my favourite images, taken by Dominic Postiglione:

Secondly was the ‘World Press Photo 2010‘, an exhibition I visit every year. It celebrates the best in photojournalism from around the world and features an amazing selection of images, some confronting. If you can’t make it to a city holding the exhibition you can view all the winners on the WPP site. Both exhibitions are on at the State Library of NSW with Photos1440 running until August 1st, and WPP10 finishing on July 25th. Here’s one of my favourites from the WPP, an amazing capture of a Stealth Bomber doing a flyover at the 95th Rose Bowl game, by Mark Holtzman:
