Ffoton Talks: Marc Vallé

University of South

On Thursday 19 May 2016 I will be in Cardiff to give two talks on my work, public & private space and self-publishing.

In the afternoon I will be at the University of South Wales for the photojournalism students and in the evening at Ffoton Talks.

The Ffoton Talks event is open to the public and you can book a ticket here.
