Visa pour l'image 2016

An outstanding view of the history of the present day

Jean-François Leroy

For the 28th International Festival of Photojournalism Visa pour l’Image-Perpignan, the publishing house Snoeck is pleased to be producing the festival’s ninth official catalogue. Since the first festival in 1989, the message has been one of quality – quality visual news reports conveying information, as seen through the eyes of photojournalists, offering their essential contribution. Everyone who appreciates photography and reporting comes to the festival, a major event in the photography calendar. Every year the festival attracts larger crowds to the city of Perpignan, and in 2015 recorded more than 220 000 visitors. For 27 years, Visa pour l’Image-Perpignan has been following developments and changes in both the politics and the economy of photojournalism and the press industry, and has supported professional photojournalists by providing them with the opportunity to show their work to a wide range of people. Now, more than ever before, we can see just how important the festival is, acting as an advocate for photojournalists whose job is to provide news and information, to offer insights and issue warnings, while working in conditions with no real security, whether for physical safety or for employment/income. The catalogue presents the program of the 2016 festival, with an eight-page feature on each exhibition and photographer.
