Here is a chance for you to improve on your moonlight and star trail pictures. Don’t miss this handbook which offers a wealth of practical night photography skills. You will also find images taken by fellow photographers and associated technical specifications.
Curious about war correspondents, one of the most dangerous professions on earth?
Visit this exhibition which showcases first-hand war reports, narratives, images and footages of the wars in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Other exhibit highlights include a Leica camera used during WWII and a journalist’s protective suit in the 2003 Iraq War. They all reveal the brutalities of wars and make us ponder the value of peace.
