The touring exhibit launched in Amsterdam on April 18, and took in its last guests on June 22. Alongside the images, visitors could indulge in organized presentations, discussions about issues in the photographic industry, and an awards ceremony. John Stanmyer’s "Signal" was named photo contest winner, exhibiting African migrants on the shores of Djibouti City.
