Perpignan…and Visa pour L’Image 2011

leave a comment »

Ever since I have been studying photography Perpignan and the International Festival of Photojournalism, has been spoken about as almost a kind of pilgrimage that one must do before they die.  Well this year I’m heading out there.  Yes I’m off to Visa pour L’Image for 5 days.

The idea being that I can network with some photojournalists and let them give their ‘two penneth’ on my current project based in the Ukraine.  Yes I’m prepared.   A small selection of images have been loaded on to the iPad which I hope to trawl around and show those that matter.  I’m also hoping to take in a few exhibitions and talks whilst I am there.

I’m also hoping to catch up with Peter Dench who has been on hand to give me advice since the start of the project.  I interned for Peter earlier in the year and he gave me a few pointers which I have taken on board .  Peter writes a monthly column, ‘The Dench Diary’ for the newly established Hungry Eye Magazine   Coincidentally he is also preparing for Perpignan as the video below shows…All Aboard!
