To honour the memory of Alexandra Boulat, who has been teaching at TPW since 2003, TPW has created a scholarship. This will consist in the possibility to attend a workshop at TPW for free (included room and board). It will be offered to a young (under 35) female photojournalist. Details on how to apply in the next newsletter.
I just returned from a short trip in Brazil, where I attended the photo festival Paraty em Foco. Very likely, we will start a series of workshop there next year. Please check their website, it is a small festival but extremely well organized, very professionally run and with a great atmosphere. www.paratyemfoco.com
One of the appointment of the season, not to be missed, it is certainly Paris-Photo www.parisphoto.fr Nov 15-18. It offers to possibility to see exceptional photographs exhibited by the world’s leading galleries. TPW will not be there with a booth, but me and some of my team will be there as visitors: if you happen to be in Paris, let us know and we can meet up!
