I received a grant from the Patricia Seppälä Foundation which enables me to take part in the international festival of photojournalism “Visa pour l’Image” in Perpignan, France in September, 3rd to 9th, 2012.
This trip is a part of my dissertation project. Festival will be a great occasion for me to learn more about journalistic images and then use this knowledge in my pedagogical work (i.e. teaching press photography).
The information collected through meetings, photography exhibitions and screenings I would also like to dedicate to preliminary research for the article about connotative interpretation of photojournalistic images. I would like, as well, to collect contacts to photojournalists for interviews for my research work.
