Visa pour l'Image 2016: an overview

On 27th August 2016 opens the 28th edition of Visa pour l'Image - International Festival of Photojournalism, the great French event dedicated to photojournalism and its most distinguished members.

Organised in Perpignan by the Association Visa pour l'Image - Perpignan, and directed once again by Jean-François Leroy, the 2016 edition proposes the formula of always, a mix of exhibitions and recounts, meetings and debates, award ceremonies and evening screenings that will transform the French town at the foot of the Pyrenees in a place of sharing and exchange for professionals and admirers of the genre. The aim of the event is in fact always the same: to enable visitors to find out about situations and realities, often unknown and / or inaccessible, through high-level photographic works and, above all, allow photojournalists, industry experts and emerging photographers around the world to gather and meet new professionals, build relationships and allow international photojournalism to grow.

The festival will open again this year with the customary Semaine Professionnelle (from 29th August to 4th September), or rather the week dedicated to the professionals of the sector in which are concentrated the most part of the events on the calendar and that the staff of FPmag will not miss. As for the exhibition programme, however, twenty exhibitions are foreseen that will give the public the chance to admire reportage realised both by internationally renowned authors and emerging talents. Among these Paco - A Drug Story by Italian photojournalist Valerio Bispuri, The Children of Chernobyl Have Grown Up by Niels Ackermann, winner of the Ville de Perpignan Rémi Ochlik Award 2016, Cuba by the great Marc Riboud, Kurdistan: the other Iraq. How the Kurds are reshaping Northeastern Iraq by the inevitable Yuri Kozyrev and above all Copacabana Palace by Peter Bauza, photojournalist of the Italian agency Echo Photojournalism, which we have already reported through these pages (see. link Meltingpot inserted in Internal Resources). These twenty exhibitions are also in addition to the customary collective Daily Press, which brings together the best images published during the year in newspapers throughout the world and, as expected, the exhibition dedicated to the latest edition of World Press Photo. After years of continuous presence, last year the exhibition reserved for the winners of the prestigious photojournalism award organised annually by the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam was excluded from the festival programme after the infamous Troilo case, but already at the end of the 2015 edition the two parties appeared to have been close to a reconciliation, which the return of the exhibition this year seems to confirm.

In the busy schedule proposed by this 28th edition of Visa pour l'Image there will be the usual week dedicated to schools (from 12th to 16th September) and the awaited assignment of the prestigious Visa D'or 2016. So continue to follow us through the VISA2016 tag which can be found among the Internal Resources, because we are going to tell you all about what we see and hear, and what will strike us both in good and bad.
