David Bate on ISSP (28 September 2011):
ISSP 2011 was a great experience for me, as I am sure for everyone else who did it. I was amazed at the energy of the event... This is no doubt a 'hothouse environment' which enables passion to turn into production, and production into a critical dialogue and thinking with those who also love photography. Beautifully organized, wonderful location, light and sounds, a real summer treat.

Marcos Lopez on ISSP (13 September 2011):
... Fue mi mejor experiencia como maestro en mas de 20 años de trabajo en America Latina y Europa. Creo que los duendes y los elfos del bosque nos ayudaron. Alta calidad humana y artistica. Un excelente grupo organizador, de alumnos y de maestros. Sin duda tiene todos los elementos para ser considerada muy pronto la mejor escuela de Europa. Para mí ya lo es.
Arno Rafael Minkkinen on ISSP (7 September 2011):
To answer the famous question one gets later in life - where and with whom did you study - I can’t imagine ISSP students not reflecting back instantly on this amazing time of magical learning, creative abandon, intrepid risk taking - and moonlight dancing - not to mention the endless waterfalls and epiphanies of Kuldiga, the perfect location for it all. I know I would. Com’on, I was a student too!
Claudine Doury on ISSP (2 September 2011):
ISSP is unique, its not surprising that participants apply from all over the world. One week of non-stop creativity in the middle of the forest. All made possible because of the incredible energy of the ISSP team. Special thanks to my students, it was an amazingly talented and lovely group.
