Visa Pour l’Image: A peek at the exhibitions at the International Festival of Photojournalism

The 26th annual Visa Pour l’Image, the Cannes Film Festival” of photojournalism, kicks off next week, filling the French city of Perpignan with more than 3,000 of the world’s best photojournalists and photo editors, along with agencies from around the world, converging to share tips, contacts, more than a few drinks, and the best of the world’s photographic images.

This year’s Visa Pour l’Image showcases 26 exhibitions around the city. In a year renowned for violence against journalists, many are anticipating a retrospective of recently fallen Associated Press photographer Anja Neidringhaus’ work, as well as images from the late Chris Hondros tribute book ‘Testament.’ The exhibition ‘Amateurs make the front page’ promises some surprises on a variety of subjects.

Meetings, seminars and lectures fill the days, followed by nightly outdoor screenings. Each evening event begins with a news reel of the best work from the breaking news of the year and award presentations. Among the most anticipated is this year’s video presentation of the new book ‘Photographer’s Paradise: Turbulent America 1960-1990,’ by award winning veteran photojournalist Jean Pierre Laffont.

Visa Pour l’Image, directed by Jean-François Leroy, starts August 30 and continues through September 14.

Here’s a preview of the exhibitions.
