ISSP 2011 was a great experience for me, as I am sure for everyone else who did it. I was amazed at the energy of the event... This is no doubt a 'hothouse environment' which enables passion to turn into production, and production into a critical dialogue and thinking with those who also love photography. Beautifully organized, wonderful location, light and sounds, a real summer treat.

... Fue mi mejor experiencia como maestro en mas de 20 años de trabajo en America Latina y Europa. Creo que los duendes y los elfos del bosque nos ayudaron. Alta calidad humana y artistica. Un excelente grupo organizador, de alumnos y de maestros. Sin duda tiene todos los elementos para ser considerada muy pronto la mejor escuela de Europa. Para mí ya lo es.
