Dutch photojournalism agency NOOR agreed on a partnership with the Swedish Kontinent agency. Resulting from discussions started in September at French-festival Visa pour l'Image, the two agencies will work together to promote their exhibitions and artists and organize photojournalism workshops and seminars.
This alliance allows both agencies to divide their production costs while expanding their respective audiences. Magnus Laupa, founder and director of Kontinent, happily affirmed "this partnership will help us both at a time when photojournalism is needed more than eve". Clément Saccomani, director of NOOR, stated that both institutions shared "the same values", built on independence, believing in the capacity of images to "impact humanity".
