On March 23rd, in the Czech city of Trutnov, the annual exhibition was inaugurated.
This is the selection of the thirty most valued photographs, among the more than three hundred that were submitted to the Jazz World Photo 2018 competition.
Once again Trutnov has become the world capital of Jazz photography.
As in the previous edition, this year's event was enlivened by the group of young musicians led by Petr Stránský.
Petr and the JWP grow together.
They're both becoming more and more interesting with every passing year, as Petr's playing seems impossible for a child of his age and the JWP increases both the number of contestants and the quality of their proposals.
