Sleeping with the enemy


Eric Whitacre is top of the UK specialist classical chart.

* Photo was taken by me at Visa pour l'Image, the 22nd International Festival of Photojournalism in Perpignan, France in September 2010. The Festival is spread across eight city centre venues including several deconsecrated churches, and the organisers refreshingly describe their selection policy as being driven by "making choices and taking a stance". For me the Festival of Journalism was one of the most absorbing and moving arts events I have attended for many years. In 2009 187,000 visitors viewed the Festival exhibitions, proving that art can disturb and appeal at the same time. Classical music can learn a lot from Visa pour l'Image. Photo is (c) On An Overgrown Path 2010. Reporters without borders are here. Our visit to Perpignan was self-funded.
