Transmission for l’Image
Transmission pour l'Image is a forum for meeting and discussing, and most importantly it is for “transmission” from one generation of photojournalists - those behind the adventure of Visa pour l’Image with us - to the next generation.
Transmission is not a course on how to “take photos” - quite the opposite. It is the photographers and picture editors who will take the time to talk about their work and the choices they have made, who will explain how they have produced, chosen, published and sold their pictures.
Transmission is here so that young photojournalists can take on and carry on the values that are the basic principles which Visa pour l’Image has always believed in.
Over three days, Transmission provides the opportunity of having a special working relationship with the professionals taking part. In 2012, they were :
|Jérôme Delay||Chris Morris|
|Jon Jones||Joao Silva|
|Patrick Chauvel||Peter Bouckaert|
Jérôme Delay was in charge of the Transmission workshops.
Jérôme is the chief photographer/Africa for Associated Press, based in Johannesburg, and has been covering international news for thirty years.
His guests for Transmission in 2012 were:
Picture Editor of the Sunday Times Magazine, who established his reputation reporting in war zones and who has also made documentaries for the BBC.
Chris barely needs to be introduced. We remember, for example, his coverage of the Balkans and his work on the US elections. He is one of the founding partners of the agency VII.
Joao Silva, who was seriously injured in Afghanistan in October 2010, was a member of the famous Bang-Bang Club and has covered many wars and conflicts over the past twenty years. He is a staff photographer with the New York Times.
The war photographer, documentary film-maker and writer who started as a young man in Vietnam and has continued through to Libya, covering many wars and conflicts, producing extensive photographic and documentary coverage.
He has written two books on his experience: Rapporteur de guerre [War Reporter] (2003) and Sky (2005).
Director of Human Rights Watch and an expert in humanitarian crises. Peter is a “veteran” with the experience of fact-finding missions in Lebanon, Kosovo, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel, Macedonia, Indonesia, Uganda and Sierra Leone. He has spoken and given testimony on war crimes to the US Senate, the Council of Europe and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in the Hague. He has written opinion pieces for media around the world and been published in magazines and daily newspapers such as Rolling Stone and The Washington Post.
