News agency Associated Press (AP) is currently exhibiting more than 100 historic photographs at the San Francisco Convent in Old Havana, Cuba.
The photo exhibit opened last May 24th and will be on display for the Cuban public for more than 3 months. This is one of the first exhibits of compelling news photographs from around the world to be shown in the Communist country.
Among those on display are Joe Rosenthal‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of the flag raising over Iwo Jima, and pictures of war from Iraq, Vietnam, and the Middle East. Nick Ut‘s 1972 iconic photo of the napalm girl is also on display, as well as Oded Balilty‘s 2006 Pulitzer-winning photograph of a Jewish settler on the West Bank struggling to resist Israeli security troops.
