If you have 9 minutes to spare, do have a look at this Aric Mayer’s Vimeo piece about photographing the aftermath of Katrina. Really worth it. The photographs, previously unseen to me, are strong and Mayer speaks very eloquently. There’s a subtlety to both the photographs and the narration that I liked a lot.

Still here in Perpignan…. Attended my first ever Visa Pour L’Image evening screenings at Campo Santo with huge expectations but was somehow underwhelmed overall. And it wasn’t necessarily about the quality of the work, but partly due to presentation. There were two standout stories though….Finbarr O’Reilly’s work about white poverty in South Africa and Stephan Vanfleteren’s portraits from DRC.  My Perpignan flatmate Olivier wrote in the BJP that it was surprising to see Vanfleteren’s project screened as Visa Pour L’Image has traditionally not been very kind towards portrait projects. Bumped into loads of people at Cafe la Poste afterwards, including Bryan Denton, who must be the tallest man I’ve ever talked to in person…
