people out there still willing to go to extraordinary lengths and put themselves in harm’s way to get to the truth and tell the stories that otherwise wouldn’t see the light of day. This week we share a selection of winning images from World Press Photo 2024, with details on how you can join us at an exclusive AP readers’ evening in London, where you can enjoy a glass of wine with the AP team and see the prints on display.
