The Biel/Bienne Festival of Photography is the only annual photography festival in Switzerland to celebrate contemporary photography. Each year in September, the works of twenty photographers of Swiss and international descents display their work in known and unusual places in the city of Biel. Visitors discover the art of the photographic tour.

On the occasion of their 16th edition, the Photo Days of Biel question the ambiguous relationships that unfold between voyeurism and exhibitionism in the presence of a camera. The festival will host 23 exhibitions of photographers from 10 countries - Iran to the United States via Spain and Switzerland.

Matt Black's project The People of Clouds is a ten-year exploration of environmental collapse and social erosion in southern Mexico's Mixteca mountains. This region is home to some of the world's olders farming villages many of which are on the verge of extinction as land degradation and erosion cripple the soil as migration tears families apart. Coming this fall, a new body of work from this project will be released, in collaboration with Orion Magazine.

In 1957, Eugene Smith moved into a dilapidated, five-story loft building at 821 Sixth Avenue in New York City. The building was a late-night haunt of musicians, including some of the biggest names in jazz-Charles Mingus, Zoot Sims, Bill Evans, and Thelonious Monk. From 1957 to 1965, Smith exposed 1,447 rolls of film at the loft, the largest body of work in his career. Smith also wired the building like a surreptitious recording studio and made 1,740 reels of stereo and mono audiotapes.

The Jazz Loft Project, organized by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University in cooperation with the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona and the W. Eugene Smith estate, is devoted to preserving and cataloging Smith's tapes, researching the photographs, and obtaining oral history interviews with all surviving loft participants through radio shows, events, performances and exhibitions.
