World Press Photo exhibition is opening in London this week…BBC’s Culture Show is going to have a piece on it on Thursday, and two of the UK winners (there were others too, of course), Nick Cobbing and Zed Nelson, should be on camera….

I saw the exhibition already in Perpignan, but the London opening event includes an interview session with several winners and judges from the 2010 World Press Photo Contest moderated by Jon Levy, founder of Foto8, so I’ll definitely go and of course the winning photographs are worth seeing again… including this…
