Some of the world’s best photojournalists are taking a break from their globetrotting schedules to come to the southern French city of Perpignan for the international photojournalism festival “Visa pour l’image” that runs until September 12.
When news broke of the violent earthquake that shook Haiti in January 2010, hundreds of press photographers from around the world packed their gear and made their way to the devastated Caribbean island. For the most part, they were all chasing the same thing: that defining image that captures the imagination and makes its way to the front pages of newspapers and websites.
