Southbank Centre's World Press Photo exhibition: shocking but vital

Evocative and affecting as ever

Refugees, war-torn cities, disease, gang violence, protests and death: things are getting decidedly morbid at Southbank Centre for the World Press Photo exhibition. Puts “can you believe Pret ran out of protein pots this morning?” whinges into perspective. The show’s as evocative and affecting as ever, particularly the winning shot of a Syrian refugee father handing his baby through a razor-wire barrier. That, and wall after wall of other entries and category winners, will leave your feels bruised and battered and your indignation stirred.
