"101 Images for Press Freedom" Wednesday, Nov. 14 (Opens Nov. 10)

The fifth annual FotoWeek DCis upon us, and Reporters Without Borders is hosting one of its weightiest shows. “101 Images for Press Freedom” captures the history of photojournalism, beginning with the Spanish Civil War and culminating with the 2010 Haitian earthquake. Included in the exhibit are works by renowned photojournalists like Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson, as well as iconic images associated with major events, like the Tienanmen Square protests. The show’s goal is to remind viewers just how much photojournalists sacrifice on the job. In conjunction with the exhibit, tonight the Corcoran Gallery of Art hosts “Transforming Society Through Photos: The Role of Free and Independent Photojournalism,” a discussion with with Magnum Photo Agency photographers Larry Towell and Peter van Agtmael and Washington Post Director of Photography MaryAnne Golon about photojournalism’s role in society. Don’t go expecting too many Instagram shots.

The exhibition is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Nov. 10–Nov. 18 at the Warner Building, 1299 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. $5. fotoweekdc.org.
