VISIONS OF EXCELLENCE EXHIBITION

ON DISPLAY OCT 24 - NOV 29, 2015
KANSAS CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY
CENTRAL LIBRARY [14 West 10th St, Kansas City, MO 64105]

One image starkly depicts the horror of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. Another reflects a family's unease - written in their eyes - after the first night of violence in Ferguson, Missouri. More buoyantly, there is Derek Jeter taking the field at Yankee Stadium for the final time in his decorated baseball career.

These arresting images are among 50 featured in the 72nd annual Pictures of the Year International (POYi) exhibition celebrating the work of the world's leading photojournalists. Administered by the University of Missouri School of Journalism, POYi focuses on pivotal events of the past year and ranges from spot news and sports photography to memorable feature portraits and photo essays.
