International Summer School of Photography 2017

Our new year begins with a bittersweet announcement - the International Summer School of Photography will not be taking place in 2017. Due to major renovation work at our base, Pelči Castle, the ISSP team is taking the opportunity to recharge, regroup and focus on other ISSP projects. We will be back in 2018, energised and bursting with fresh ideas!
