Two CBC Newsmen Present at World Press Photo Exhibition


Visitors to the World Express photo 2019 exhibit can view the photos of first editor Lise Ouangari and the weekend host of Téléjournal Ontario at the CBC booth.

Their photos tell of two tragic events they covered in 2018.

"In difficult circumstances, the photo comes with words that are often difficult to express," says Gabriel Garon.

Gabriel Garon's photos were taken at the funeral of the 7 children of the Barho family in Halifax.

The Barho are Syrian refugees who dreamed of a better life in Canada. A fire came to break this dream by killing the 7 children of the family and injuring the father very seriously.

In difficult circumstances, the photo brings the words that are often difficult to express.

Lise Ouangari is showing photos related to the Humboldt Broncos tragedy in Saskatchewan.

A collision between a semitrailer truck and a coach carrying young hockey players cost the lives of 16 people.

It's a way, she says, to show what's going on across Canada and especially what images are expressing.

It's important to show the story behind the photos, stories that have upset communities.

The two journalists are happy to see their photos among the 25 exhibited at the CBC booth.

To be part of an exhibition of this magnitude is a unique opportunity to show our work as a journalist and to tell a story through an image
