Re: Perpignan photojournalism exhibition

Congratulations Andre on another nice set of photos from a region of France many of us in North America are unfamiliar with. I had to look up Perpignan, Elne on a map. In the process discovered I learned it was part of the Kingdom of Majorca with a blend of Catalan and French culture. I bet the cuisine was fantastic.

On the topic of photojournalism I wonder if it will survive the ongoing consolidation in media. A common fact cited is that forty years ago American media was owned by 50 companies. Today, this number has shrunk to just six! Trend is perhaps similar in the French media?

Your description of morning street cleaning in Perpignan's gypsy district is what I observed in India.

Oh, yes, I did spot the panther
