7 Oct-7 Dec 2005. Over 100 nominators from a variety of geographical, cultural and professional backgrounds were asked to chose what they felt was the best or most memorable photo feature published in the last 50 years and this exhibition is the result. Things As They Are Photojournalism in context since 1955 is also the celebration of World Press Photos 50th birthday, and over 120 photographs and features are on display at the Foam_Photography Museum in Amsterdam. The exhibition includes reproductions of magazine pages, vintage prints, original publications and various projections that illustrate the history of press photography since 1955. As well as the front cover of Paris Match featuring the student riots in Paris in 1968 and the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, there are memorable non-news breaking photos like the spectacular aerial photograph of the earth, taken from a plane by photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. There is a book of the exhibition, with the same title, written and edited by Mary Panzer. Admission 6.00 concessions 5.00 Daily 10.00-17.00 Thurs-Fri 10.00-21.00
