“Photography reorganized what was accessible to the gaze,” Ariella Azoulay writes. She calls photographs “transit visas” and insists that the camera grants a kind of citizenship that transcends borders. Through the taking and viewing of images, new lines of belonging are drawn. We are citizens not of nations but of images.
Through the years she has worked in the communication aspects of the cultural industry for International events and festivals like Tocatì – International Festival of Street Games, World Social Forum and African Film Festival, providing leadership to staff and volunteers in managing all operations and affairs of the festival and fulfilling the mandate of the organizations.
