Visa pour l'image (August 27 - September 11, 2005) starts today with around 3000 photojournalists and 280 press agencies from 50 countries (Peter Marshall); all will be present during the professional week (August 29 - September 4, 2005).
It´s great to see that this year no one is talking about the problems that the festival was facing last year ("This year, as you all realize, the very existence of Visa pour l’Image was in the balance", so Jean-François Leroy in 2004).
This pdf-file (25 pages) lists all exhibitions, all evening events (Aug 29 - Sept 3 only) and shows, awards, meetings, interviews and the symposium. The photojournalist and writer Patrick Bard will moderate the panel discussions investigating the question: "Is Photojournalism a political statement?" More also here at PDN.
