Responding to questions on the increasing need to find new ways to sustain oneself in the face of current challenges such as the fight for press freedom, commercialisation of editorial images and staying safe, the Photojournalism Hub aims to provide a platform in which photojournalists meet to find relevant answers, advice and learning. Photojournalism Hub is pleased to welcome Vudi Xhymshiti, a documentary photographer and journalist, whose work focuses on the politics of race, gender, identity, migration and conflict. Xhymshiti is also the founder of VX Pictures , a photo agency that aims to counter the existing trend in the photography business of mass-produced commercial images.
VX Pictures stands for prioritising the photographers by inviting them to be part of the agency in a collective manner.
