Besides that, though, the museum also had the World Press Photographer's Association pictures of the year. They were awesome, and sobering. There were a fair number of pictures of Afghanistan, some haunting images from Colombia, and of course a lot of photos from Palestine. Many other thought-provoking photos were there, including a surprising number of compelling sports photos.
The two shows were almost polar opposites in term of accompanying information: Moriyama says *nothing* about the context of his photos, even the titles are just "Shinjuku" or "Buenous Aires". The press photos are a part of journalism, so communicating the story that goes with the photo is the core of their craft and even in a show of arresting images, they made sure the accompanying materials were copious.
