Visa Pour l'Image 2010, Photojournalism Festival in Perpignan, Until Sept 12, Free

The world comes to Perpignan from August 28 to September 12 for Visa pour l'Image 2010, a celebration of photography or more precisely Photojournalism.

World masters of this brand of reporting, get a chance to share their work with the public at large since the festival is Free.


They show us the calm as well as the harsh side of human nature.

On the sunnier side of things I noticed these Exhibitions

Wisdom of the Human Race by Danielle and Olivier Föllmi, "a tribute to the grandeur of human beings and human dignity, and a celebration of the spiritual heritage of mankind.  A decade traveling and investigating the world produced this major humanistic project."

The Congo River by Cedric Gerbehaye,"the majestic Congo River, the second largest river in the world after the Amazon, is the spine of the country with the same name, forming a link between the Katanga mines, the equatorial forest and the capital city, Kinshasa."

Entrance is  Free and Exhibitions are opened from 10 AM to 8 PM.

There are also evening screenings taking a look back at over and under reported events from the past year.

Specialist magazine Zmala 'A curious eye' will launch Issue #2 during the festival (September 2).


Since the festival events are scattered in a number of locations around Perpignan, it will give attendees a chance to explore this fine city.
