Back from Perpignan and another great visit to Visa Pour l’Image… obviously a lot of  fun was had and it did hurt a bit looking at my bank balance this morning …but it was also a productive week or so in terms of showing work and meeting editors….and educational having sat through several photographers’ talks…Chris Morris and Gary Knight to mention just a couple…But if there are two words that really sum up Visa Pour l’Image 2011 for me, they are exhaustion and inspiration…Those were at least the two things on top of my mind landing back in London Monday evening… the late nights, early rises, and eventful days certainly took their toll…but you also get very inspired attending the evening screenings at Campo Santo or La Republique, looking at the exhibitions at places like Couvent de Minimes, showing and getting feedback for your work at Palais de Congress, or just talking shop with fellow photographers and other industry types over dinners in some of the many very fine restaurants or over drink at the famous La Poste…or just plain fooling around

My festival highlights in terms of looking at work were exhibition of Barbara Davidson’s Pulitzer winning work Caught in the Crossfire about innocent victims of LA gang warfare…and seeing Canon AFJ 2011 recipient Ilvy Njiokiktjien present a very well put-together multimedia version of her award winning series at the Canon stage…hope the video will be online soon somewhere, I’d love to be able to share it…

Before we look at the latest features, take a moment for this…

Fundraing for Anton Hammerl’s (1969-2011)  3 children…

Friends of Anton | related on BJP

It was unfortunate there was no tribute to Anton during Visa evening screenings as there were for Lucas Dolega, Chris Hondros, and Tim Hetherington,  apparently because Hammerl’s photos had not been released for free due to a misunderstanding (this according to BJP’s Olivier Laurent) …

‘This Is What I Do. This Is All That I Know.” – Joao Silva

Part of NYT Lens’ Visa coverage…Joao Silva had a show of his Afghanistan work…

Joao Silva (NYT Lens: August 2011)

My favourite frame of Silva’s exhibition made me think of  other  photos I’ve seen of the B52 trails in the Afghan skies…photos which kind of seem to sum up and symbolise for me the long term foreign influence in the country…Of course the US and its allies have been in Afghanistan for 10 years with tens of thousands of boots on the ground…but when you think longer term…How will the last ten years of fight against the Taliban be seen in 20 years… 30 years… or 50 years? With US and its allies planning to reduce their presence in the country, will this most most recent war in Afghanistan be seen just as ‘a 10 years-or-so long in-and-out bomber round’? What has really been achieved?

Below Silva’s frame side-by-side Anderson’s, Knight’s, and Boulat’s…

Faded Tulips

play this essay

Since late 2007 I have traveled several times to Kyrgyzstan to work on an ongoing project entitled Faded Tulips, a long term social portrait of the former Soviet republic, two decades after its independence, undermined by poverty, corruption and chronic political instability: an explosive mixture.
The “Tulip Revolution” of 2005 brought hope and a promise of democracy to Kyrgyzstan. However, within a few years the situation had worsened, democracy was regressing and the economic situation dire. 40% of the population now live below the poverty line and some studies say nearly half of the population regret the passing of the communist era. Unsurprisingly, a bloody revolution in 2010 plunged the country into a new wave of violence. Two months later, in Osh, the southern capital, the ethnic confrontations between Kyrgyz and Uzbeks ended in an anti-Uzbek pogrom. Up to 2,000 people were killed and 400,000 displaced.

I reached Osh a few days following the clashes. I was deeply moved by the atrocity of the evidence I witnessed, and the scale of the drama. These sudden and violent tragic events cast further light on the ethnic tensions that exist in south Kyrgyzstan, which in turn led me to understand that my long term work on the republic should be completed by an investigation of these tensions, many of which resulted from the original borders of the USSR, drawn up by Lenin decades earlier.

I plan to visit Uzbek and Tadjik enclaves: Sokh, Chakhimardan, Voroukh, and would return to Osh where the situation remains tense. I will also spend some time in the eastern mountain villages, epicenter of Kyrgyz nationalism, and from where many young men came to participate in the massacres.
I will also take a further look into the presence of this radical Islam in which the Uzbeks may take refuge. In Osh, an Uzbek told me “we have been in contact with the Islamists. They will come and defend us. It will be the Jihad. It’s not what we want but we don’t have the choice.”
