Elephants, close-up

Latest update : 2008-09-08

Michael Nichols is a photographer for National Geographic magazine. Featuring close-up snaps of African elephants, his exhibition at Perpignan's photojournalism festival is a moving tribute to these fascinating animals.

France 24 is a partner of the Visa pour l'Image International Festival of Photojournalism, which is taking place in Perpignan, in the south of France, until Sept. 14. This week, we have come up with a selection of some of the exhibits on show at this important photojournalism gathering.
 

This year the festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary, with an exceptional programming: over 30 exhibitions and nearly 18,000 photographs are on display over 6 evenings of viewings. Throughout the week, France 24 will be taking you to meet the photographers and their images.

 
You can also discover Yuri Kozyrev's exhibition on US soldiers in Iraq, Paula Bronstein's exhibition on women in Afghanistan, and Marie Dorigny's exhibition on India's landless.
