Visa Pour l’Image, the annual photo festival in Perpignan, France, will celebrate its 25th anniversary this September, and a number of Reportage photographers will have their work recognized during the week of exhibitions, screenings and awards. Most notably, Laurent Van der Stockt is one of four nominees for the prestigious Visa d’or News award for his groundbreaking work covering the use of chemical weapons in Syria (top), as shot for Le Monde. Six photographers are receiving evening screenings of their work, including Katie Orlinsky's project on the victims of Mexico's drug war (middle left); Alvaro Ybarra Zavala's report on the health effects of chemicals used in farming; and Brent Stirton's story about the illegal ivory trade (bottom).
You can see a full lineup of Reportage photographers being featured in Perpignan on the Reportage Web site.
