Noor, the Amsterdam-based photo agency, was launched on 06 September 2007 at the Visa pour l'Image photojournalism festival. Since then, its members have been exhibited more than nine times in Perpignan, and received three of the festival's Visa d'Or awards.
Now the agency is planning a series of events in Perpignan to celebrate its fifth anniversary. On 06 September, member photographers Nina Berman, Pep Bonet, Andrea Bruce, Stanley Greene, Yuri Kozyrev, Kadir van Lohuizen, Jon Lowenstein, Francesco Zizola, as well as Jan Grarup, who left the agency last month, will come together to present a new book project in association with Blurb.
The event, which will kick off at 4.30pm, will take place at the Librairie Chapitre on Place La Poudrière, but won't form part of the festival's official programme. It will be followed by a book-signing session with a series of books created for the agency's anniversary.
"In five years, Noor saw 13 member photographers, four advisory board members, six employees, 24 interns, organised over 20 international group exhibitions and realised six educational projects with a total of 89 participants, and created four unique group projects," says the agency. "That Noor exists five years later, and envisions a future five years from now, is a testament to the friendship amongst its members, the respect for each other's visions and their collective dedication to the communicative power of photography."
The agency will also unveil a new website "based on the latest trends in web design, allowing for optimal viewing of Noor's photography on any monitor, and fully tuned for the iPad, smartphones and Android [devices]."
