World Press Photo visits Manila

World Press Photo Foundation official Marteen Koets speaks at a forum hosted by the Philippine Center for Photojournalism at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, june 26, 2005

July was definitely a month of photography at the Cultural Center of the Philippines starting with a great retrospective exhibit of photojournalist Alex Baluyut's brother, Butch, at the main gallery of the CCP, and alongside the birthday tribute exhibit of photographer/mentor Dick Baldovino.

This all coincided with the visit of World Press Photo's Marteen Koets who spoke before photographers about the Dutch-based photojournalism competition held yearly which accompanies a traveling global exhibit of the winners and featured documentary work of shooters from all over. Koets also mentioned that the WPP exhibit is scheduled to visit Manila in May of next year.
