Opening International Photofestival Leiden
Last Saturday was the opening of the International photo festival Leiden. We kicked off the 5th edition of the photo festival with a local Leiden 'Barry' beer. Writer and journalist Yaël Vinckx interviewed the 15 photographers present at the festival. A nice atmosphere.
The story that fascinated me the most was that of my Belgian colleague and photographer of 'De Standaard', Sebastian Steveniers about his series 'Bosfights'. Check out his story here; how documentary work and journalism are under pressure ...
Maybe we have to arrange a Bosfight between photographers and justice- end policemen to work things out on a righteous manner ;).
The International Photofestival Leiden lasts until October 31 in the Singelparks in Leiden.
