PPY – the Press Photographers’ Year

The PPY exhibition is on at the National Theatre’s Lyttelton Foyer on the South Bank in London.
The exhibition closes on September 13, so you’ve only got two more weeks to see it if you haven’t already.
Talking of which, I highly recommend you do! I finally managed to see the exhibition a couple of days ago and its absolutely stunning. Its a collection of the best news and sports photography from 2007, and I’m sure will be one of the best exhibitions you see this year.

Its proving so popular that its the NT’s most visited exhibition this year and they have extended the exhibition by two weeks. There’s also a book of the work, so visit the NT book shop afterwards.

A temporary part of the exhibition (which may be changed any day), is the Olympic Wall, where British photographers covering the Beijing Olympics wired in images from China. These were then printed onto large format Canon printers and immediately exhibited in real time.
A few notable images to look out for were taken by Daniel Berehulak, Sean Smith (who also has a film being shown at the exhibition),  Lefteris Pitarakis, Andrew Parsons, Gareth Copley and David Bebber.
