Visa Pour l'Image photo festival 'a necessary eye-opener'

By Rosslyn Hyams

In this week's Culture in France, we head down to the Visa Pour l'Image international photojournalism festival in Perpignan on the French Mediterranean coast.

Jean-François Leroy established the festival in 1989. He told RFI’s Rosslyn Hyams that this event is like an oasis for the news photographers, as well as a necessary eye-opener for all visitors.
