A French photography festival lets you see what the photographer saw, unedited.
Photo Director Alison Morley
For every great photograph that accompanies a news story, there are dozens that didn't make it in. To see what the photo editor didn't (or couldn't) choose, book a flight to the south of France for Visa Pour L'image, the fastest‑growing photography festival in the world. Photojournalists from all over will gather in the Basque village of Perpignan September 3‑18 to view the best recent work their colleagues have produced. This year, special exhibitions by American photographers Mary Ellen Mark (whose work Wildwood, New Jersey, 1991 is at left) and Mark Seliger are slated.
