The World Press Photo exhibition showcases the best press photos taken across the world. For the 2019 contest, 78,801 photos were submitted from 120 countries. They were then whittled down over a period of three weeks by 17 jurors and the winning photos are now on display at the château.
There are some extraordinary and poignant photos in this exhibition, such as this below of a child collecting recyclable material whilst lying on a mattress, and surrounded by garbage on the Pasig River in Manila (this river is one of the 20 most polluted rivers in the world).
