World Press Photo opening in Ljubljana

with 10 comments

B5, JeanChristoph Couet and Chris de Bode as critics of a winning picture of World Press Photo 2008 opening in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

THe opening of exhibition was good. Quite a lot of people showed up, although not so much professional photographers, that are constantly complaining how nothing is going on the field of photojournalism on in Slovenia.

readers of this blog know already JeanChristoph Couet – Čefur. He received a funding to do a project on depression and suicide in Ljubljana and he will exhibit it in April. All inspired by the WPP exhibition I suggested to start the project right away so this pictures happened. I think it’s great foundation for his exhibition.

    I don’t know how to say it, but your parents are alive and healthy. They are teachers in NY. They love you.

    sorry for late answer. I agree with you! Very little journalism in that work.
