Perpignan photojournalism exhibition


I was in Perpignan for the exhibition called "Visa pour l'image", dedicated to photojournalism.

Lots of excellent pictures there. But very difficult to stand, since most of the photos are about war, injustice, and disasters. Afghanistan, Syria, India, Haiti, Palestine,...

The exhibitions are presented in several locations, the main one being a former convent.

I was very impressed by Eric Bouvet, a war reporter who did a very impressive job.

What's interesting is the story behind each photo.

Sorry, only the french text is entirely visible, and you can see the reflections of the light. No way to avoid that.

Another report impressed me a lot, about gun ownership in the USA.

I know that most of the subscribers to dpreview are Americans. So I will not comment on these pictures, because I don't want to start a debate. I will just say that this is totally unimaginable in Europe.

Something completely different: I've seen there the most incredible pictures of wildlife by a photographer called Vincent Munier.

Can you spot the panther?

Another one:

I walked a lot in Perpignan. We were located not far from the gypsy district. It's a very special place, where the rules are completely different from what I'm used to.

Every day, the streets are cleaned early in the morning. At noon, they already are full of garbage. At night, people stay in the middle of the street. You cannot drive there.

People are poor, but nice. You don't understand their langage, but they understand french. These streets are secure, and we were not afraid to walk around at night.

Well, it's a different culture...

To change the atmosphere, I went to Elne, a small medieval village nearby, with an interesting cathedral.

Here are some pictures:

Not bad for iso 5600...

strange lights in the cathedral. Looks like a human face, depending on how you see it.

That's all. All pictures shot raw, processed with DxO PL4.

Important:  I solved the problem of the 6.7-13 "auto-on" flaw. To avoid the lens to put the camera "on" simply by touching it, I leave the lens out. I don't retract it. And then, the problem disappears. Good to know.
