VISA pour l'Image 2015

Punctual, as every year, with the arrival of September in Perpignan the most awaited event is returning for the enthusiasts of photojournalism and documentary photography.
Indeed on 29th August, the 27th edition of Visa pour l'Image - Festival International du Photojournalisme will open, the event dedicated to this controversial photographic genre and its most illustrious exponents. A long series of exhibitions and events, which up to 13th September 2015, will enliven the French town in the foothills of the Pyrenees in an attempt to turn it into a place of sharing and comparison for enthusiasts and professionals of the genre. The goal of the event is always the same: to enable visitors to find out about situations and reality which are often unknown or inaccessible, through photographic works of high standard and, above all, allow photojournalists, industry experts and emerging photographers from around the world to gather and meet, exchange experiences and contacts, to make new professional relationships and so allowing international photojournalism to grow.
Organised by the Association Visa pour l’Image - Perpignan, and directed once again by Jean-François Leroy, the 2015 edition foresees the usual Semaine Professionnelle in the days from 31st August to 6th September. A week of events, meetings, debates and evening screenings, which staff from FPmag will not miss. As for the exhibition programme, for the moment we will just say that we will be covering numerous reportage works both by established authors as well as emerging talents such as Marcus Bleasdale, Giulio Piscitelli, Stephanie Sinclair, Diana Zeyneb Alhindawi, Juan Manuel Castro Prieto and Lynsey Addario. There will be will about twenty works on display in the different locations in the city, to which will be added a series of slightly different exhibitions of matrix, although always related to the field of photojournalism. Among these, the traditional collective that brings together the most significant images from the daily press and the one dedicated to all the young winners of the Prix du Jeune Reporter / Prix de la Ville de Perpignan Rémi Ochlik, now in its tenth edition.
Notably absent in this edition of the exhibition of this year's World Press Photo, , excluded from the programme following the Troilo case, as anticipated controversially in recent months by the same Jean-François Leroy on the Facebook page of the festival. On the programme, however, the usual week dedicated to schools (14th to 18th September), the expected award of the prestigious Visa D’or 2015 and much more, which we will keep you updated with. Continue to follow us with the tag VISA2015!
