Pictures of the Year International: Visions of Excellence

Saturday, September 15, 2018 to Sunday, October 28, 2018
Rocky & Gabriella Mountain Gallery

A car plows with terrifying force through a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. The 15-year-old survivor of a forced Boko Haram suicide bombing mission poses in Nigeria, discreetly shrouding her face with flowers. Hitterite children in Manitoba play tag atop a stack of massive straw bales.

They’re among 50 arresting images featured in the 75th annual Pictures of the Year International exhibition celebrating the work of the world’s leading photojournalists. Administered by the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri’s Missouri School of Journalism, it focuses on pivotal events of the past year and ranges from spot news to feature photos.

Co-presented by Pictures of the Year International and the Kansas City/Mid-America chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers, Pictures of the Year International is located in the Rocky and Gabriella Mountain Gallery on the second floor of Central Library.
