These images depict the people and events that have defined our times, capturing war and peace, disaster and triumph, and the social and cultural shifts that have shaped the past 75 years. The pictures were selected from POYi’s archive of more than 40,000 photos, tracing the evolution of photojournalism from World War II to today.

The groundbreaking photography exhibit is being made possible with generous support from Nikon USA, and it will be on display through Jan. 20, 2019.

The exhibit includes:

  • an original, 6-minute Newseum video production,
  • “POYi at 75,” featuring POYi curators reflecting on 75 years of the contest, the evolution of photojournalism and the power of photography, and
  • interviews with award-winning photographers Carol Guzy and Randy Olson and acting POYi director David Rees.
