Visa pour l'image: 30 years of stories they don't want you to hear

By Alison Hird

Visa pour l'image in the French town of Perpignan is the world's largest photojournalism festival. You get to see free exhibitions on under-reported stories; photojournalists try and sell their pictures in an increasingly cash-strapped industry. From the war in Yemen to the Rohingya crisis, the ravages of chemical waste to massive industrial food production, there's plenty to get you thinking. And before you think it's all doom and gloom RFI has space for an uplifting post-conflict story. Walk with us through the town.

With Samuel Bollendorff (Contamination), George Steinmetz (Big Food), Catalina Martin-Chicos (Columbia (Re)birth).
