A magical space for students' struggle, growth and realisations in their photographic development with a lot of fun in between. The passion of the ISSP team carried through to all of us allowing amazing bonds to blossom. PLEASE invite me again!

Phil Toledano on ISSP (28 August 2012):
I wasn't quite sure what to expect from ISSP, but I was suprised on all counts. The level of the students, and their ability AND desire to go beyond what they were used to. I was surprised by the intensity of the experience - how quickly we became a close-knit community, and by how much I got out of it. I was quite sad, when it was all over.
