Will be travelling to my native Finland during Thursday, so you’ll probably have to enjoy these updates until Friday.
Oh and….remember when I was asking about tips for Perpignan accommodation..well, I received a really nice email this morning from Yasmina Reggad, Director and curator of Photo-Festivals, and she invited me to join an incredible sounding residency they are having at Perps…more details of which later…Definitely an invitation I wasn’t going to refuse… So the accommodation appears sorted, and it really looks like I can make my first Visa visit happen. Very much looking forward to it. Thanks Yasmina, Olivier, and Veejay!
