Weekend To Do: 3 Years of Le Journal de la Photographie

Last evening the shocking news hit our inbox, La Journal de la Photographie was shutting down:
by Jean-Jacques Naudet
There are limits that should never be crossed: that of showing disrespect to co-workers. These limits have all been violated. Unfulfilled promises, and commitments, technological improvements ignored, payments due canceled or denied, the last six months have been a living nightmare .The Team of the Journal and I draw the line. It's over, this is our last issue.
One should not scorn with impunity a great team who for nearly three years worked to help create the Journal , developed and led it to where it is today. The Journal was a concept, and it was mine, but above all it was a team who day after day showed passion, dedication and enthusiasm. There is sadness, bitterness, regret, of course. The Journal was you, every day more numerous and passionate.
