These men and women are truly the best in their respective fields.” This year, 1600 people attended from 25 countries around the globe.

A WIPI online juried exhibition

A reminiscence from Martine Franck, photographer & wife of Henri Cartier-Bresson: "Henri was always immensely supportive as a photographer. He taught me how to say "No" gracefully and to follow through all projects right to the end. In his opinion no details were insignificant and he would always say," Don't show your work until you feel ready and you have done your own editing." He was adamant about being at the printers when a book was being printed. How right he was."
