The 12th Festival of Photo-Journalism, which opens today in Perpignan (Pyrénées-Orientales), will be punctuated during the first week by night screening sessions at the Campo Santo. The program offers, until September 17, about thirty exhibitions to be discovered, free of charge at the Convent of Minims (le gros morceau), the Chapel of St. Dominic, the Gallieni barracks, the Castillet, the Palace of the Corts, or Convent of St. Clare, the Chapel of the Third Order, the Casa Xanxo and the Palace of Congresses. In this copious menu, in addition to the Joël Robine retrospective, the thirty years of American history as seen by David Hume Kennerly, and the war reports by Jérome Delay. Two interesting and different approaches to the religious phenomenon, that of Alfred Yaghobzadeh and that of Mike Abrahams. The retrospective of Jeanine Niepce, in the humanist lineage.
