When the sun goes down...

It’s been another busy day in Perpignan today with more than a few sore heads from a night of socialising the day before. But Visa is Visa, and opportunities for catching up with colleagues in the global world of photojournalism are limited, so when the sun goes down, the networking starts...

Photographers rush up the stairs in the Palais des Congrès to make their appointments for Agency reviews.

The Campo Santo was packed last night for the nightly review and more awards were presented as well as several screenings including work from Sebastian Castañeda on Ecuador’s earthquake from April, an essay on outcasts on the Paris ring road by Diane Grimonet, a tribute to the late Peter Marlow from Magnum Photos who died this year, and William Daniels update from the Central African Republic.

Reported here (link is: tbc) were the Getty Grants for Editorial Photography, which were presented today by Aidan Sullivan, VP Photo Assignments, Getty Images to Canon Explorer Jonathan Torgovnik, Mary F. Calvert, Katie Orlinsky, Sergey Ponomarev and Kirsten Luce, winner this year of the David Laidler Memorial Award, in memory of a close Getty colleague who died in 2015.

Winner of the Canon Female Photojournalist Award 2015 Anastasia Rudenko is exhibiting at this year's Visa pour l'Image.

Taking advantage perhaps of the excellent airconditioning in the Palais des Congrès’ l’Auditorium Charles Trénet, many people came to listen to four photographers and four reporters discuss their experiences in the front line of photojournalism, covering events such as the fall of Sinjar, the battle of Fallujah, the Palmyra offensive, Yarmouk camp in Damascus, and the frontline in Mosul.

Frédéric Lafargue, Christophe Petit-Tesson, Laurent Van der Stockt, Alfred Yaghobzadeh, Pierre Barbancey, Alfred de Montesquiou, Régis Le Sommier and Flore Olive all spoke about their experiences in covering conflict and the challenges they faced.

Jocelyn Bain Hogg signs a copy of his book outside the bookshop at the Eglise des Dominicains.

Today, Canon and Magnum completed their series of special Portfolio Reviews, which ran from August 29 to September 2. We spoke to Chilean photographer Tomas Fernandez, currently studying at EFTI in Madrid, who showed his work on amateur bullfighters to the Director at the Photographic Museum of Humanity Giuseppe Oliviero. He told CPN: “I got a very different point of view from what I usually get in Madrid. It was very helpful to find new angles to develop my story and get new ideas to complete my story. The opportunity to have a portfolio review for free from somebody who is involved in the photographic world and is not always easy to reach.”

It’s been a ram-packed Visa pour l’Image without a doubt and certainly a classic. The number of younger photojournalists arriving at this year’s festival was noticeable and this is certainly one of the many reasons to celebrate the vision of the festival and the spirit of the industry we work in.
