BOOK SIGNINGS AT VISA:

This is My Country
Ingetje Tadros
Signing: September 2nd at 3 pm at La Poudrière: Rue Rabelais, Perpignan

Talibes Modern Day Slaves
Mario Cruz

Signing: September 2nd at 3 pm at La Poudrière: Rue Rabelais, Perpignan

Mario Cruz gained rare access to the dark side of many darras (Koranic schools) in Senegal and captured disturbing but stunning photographs of the lives of young boys subjected to slave-like conditions. The book Talibes Modern Day Slaves documents an alarming development among the darras that impacts at least 50,000 young boys in Senegal, aged between five and 15.

The work received the 2016 World Press Photo Award for Contemporary Issues and was a finalist for the 2016 FotoEvidence Book Award.

Afghanistan: Between Hope and Fear
Paula Bronstein
Signing: September 2nd at 4 pm at La Poudrière: Rue Rabelais, Perpignan
World-acclaimed photojournalist Paula Bronstein presents a photographic portrait of this war-torn country’s people across more than a decade. With empathy born of the challenges of being an American female photojournalist working in a conservative Islamic country, Paula gives voice to those Afghans, particularly women and children, rendered silent during the violent Taliban regime.
