Default The pathetic end of a photography school

One (out of two) class of the Formation Professionnelle Superieure,
the advanced program of the Vevey School of Photography went on strike
in early October to protest the lowering of the quality of the
education, consecutive to a political decision.

The faculty, who included, amongst many others, Sarah Moon, Duane
Michals, Don McCullin, Susan Meiselas, Antonin Kratochvil, Martin Parr
and A.D Coleman, have voted with their feet and will not come back.

Naturally, the students are upset.

The students who graduated from the program before it went down the
drain are petitionning to prevent the school from associating their
"names, work, or reputations", in any way, with the new program.

Short version : If you were considering a photography school, look
elsewhere than Vevey.

there's intel, and work from the graduates which should allow
measuring the quality of the results, up at http://www.ou-t.ch
