World Press Photo Barcelona 2022

The International Photojournalism Exhibition, World Press Photo 2022, comes back in its 18th annual edition to Barcelona at the CCCB.

This truly outstanding exhibition includes some of the breathtaking images taken by photojournalists around the world in the last year.
