Alexander Hotel and management was super, location was great right in the center of the city. Transportation was easy to get to, and cafes, and if you are traveling to the southern part of France then Perpignan is a great place to visit

This is a most wonderful photo exhibition. By the nature of the press and the things going on in world some are stressful to see, some are moving and some are fun. We first came across this exhibition by chance in 2010. We went back in 2012, 2013 and again this year. The press photos were in 10 venues this... More

it was a slog around the town, down tiny alleys and up steep steps, but worth it even you didn't look at all the pics - the interiors of the venues were mind blowing !

We come to Perpinyà/Perpignan specially every year for the Visa Pour l'Image. It's a perfect weekend as you spend one day in the city and the other you can visit the Roussillon region, with a lot of treasures waiting for you. Highlights would be Cotlliure/Collioure in the seaside and the romanesque churches (St. Martí del Canigó, St. Miquel de Cuixà...),... More

The Visa Pour l'Image festival is an event where you will meet, greet and be inspired by the dedication of photojournalists. Days can be spent visiting the numerous exhibitions and evenings at Place Republique public screenings will be more than memorable. And you get to enjoy the south of France

In past years I have criticised the abundance of war photographs. I got the feeling that the shock factor was becoming too important in the exhibitions. This year there were pictures of war, but there was enough reporting of... More
