Getty Images is thrilled to announce the launch of a retrospective exhibition, Year in Focus 2015 – a stunning curation of over 80 of the most defining images that encapsulate the global news agenda and events of the past year, produced by us as Lambda C-type prints finished as Perspex Face Mounts for the exhibition.
In 2015, Getty Images’ award-winning photographers covered more than 130,000 news, sport and entertainment events, delivering award-winning imagery to news rooms and media publishers around the world. Year in Focus 2015 captures the best of the best, showcasing 2015’s most significant moments in the world of news, sport, entertainment, as well as archival anniversaries and obituaries.
Featured are powerful images from some of 2015’s most monumental news events, including the migrant crisis in Europe and the attacks in Paris, to race riots in the United States. The exhibition explores some of the year’s highest profile entertainment and sporting events, from the Oscars to the Rugby World Cup. Visitors will also be able to see some of Getty Images’ poignant archive images, marking landmark anniversaries and obituaries such as the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, or Martin Luther King, Jr. addressing the civil rights march in Montgomery, Alabama.
Getty Images, Senior Creative Director, and curator of the exhibition, Anthony Holland Parkin says: “2015 was a monumental year for global news and the world was moved by imagery captured of events and issues that occurred across the year – from the Charlie Hebdo attacks, to the migrant crisis in Europe, this retrospective provides the perfect opportunity to look back on 2015 and the moments that defined it. We are honoured to be able to share this unprecedented curation with the public.”
