Webster University refugee simulation

For three days and two nights in October, nine students from Webster University Geneva discovered how it feels to be a refugee. The Webster Humanitarian Association (WHA), in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which supplied the tents and equipment, created the refugee simulation on campus.

Musée de l'Elysée, Screening

Here is a quick note; I will be showing part of my project on Srebrenica and Bosnia Herzegovina on Thursday October 3rd, at 18:30 at the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne.

Twice a year, after  portfolio review sessions, the Musée Elysée, selects some of the works and arranges an evening of slide shows. I am, of course, very pleased that this project was selected for this event! Here are more details about the project.

Coming back from Perpignan has an added bonus, you sort of have to go through Barcelona...
And Tapas is also a great bonus.

Visa pour l'image 2013- International festival of Photojournalism

Visa pour l'image 2013
This year, right now, is the 25th anniversary of Visa pour l'image in Perpignan. It was my first time visiting. To put shortly, it is a massive boost of inspiration with lots of amazing photography to be watched in a very small town. The bonus, it is right by the Spanish border in the south of France. The drawback this year- lots of rain!
Lots of rain, lots of coffee...
