The Institute of Press of Science Information in Tunisia hosts the first session of the Photo Days, which will feature more than 300 photos of the events that occurred in Tunisia over the previous years, in addition to several cameras and their development over time.
The gallery, entitled “A picture is worth a thousand words”, is witnessing a national competition in photography and aims to allow young and professional photographers to exchange their experiences in the field of photography.
- (SOUNDBITE) Hassan Al-Fathali – media coordinator of the event:
“The gallery is held by the Institute of Press of Science Information. There are approximately 370 photos by 23 photojournalists. We tried to cover all fields of photography. We have a national photography competition open to all students in different parts of the country from various institutes, whether photography students or amateurs.”
- (SOUNDBITE) Ammar Dai – Photography Teacher:
“This is the time of the image. It is necessary to expand the culture of image and to deal with the image, its interpretation, and understanding because this has become a very important matter. I am one of the advocates of teaching the culture of the image, even to children, from an early age, considering that the image is a powerful double-edged sword and when we cannot understand the image, it may refer us to opposite things. Therefore, the image as a silent weapon, we should discover its components, mechanisms, and keys.”
- (SOUNDBITE) Amin Younesi – Photojournalist:
“A picture can convey any news even if it does not have a title. It is like writing, and when I want to say something, I use the camera. I always say we read pictures.”
