  “I don't know what to say about the festival, I was so happy to be there, the reception was so sympathetic and warm. Maybe it's a good idea to seek sponsorship by the Syrian Airlines. I was very pleased to see so many people coming to see the exhibition, I am gratified that it was of interest to all these people. It was very good. I liked very much the building, not because it’s French construction, but this space is very interesting, so pleasant and big but not too big. I liked very much the catalogue, I can show it to many people in Paris. I hope to work again in Syria (Aleppo or Damas, or elsewhere...) and with you again”.

  Referring to the feedback.
1- Photos should not be GLUED or STICK to the wall but cleanly presented.
2- Better photographer presentation on a small separate panel giving more credit to the presented work.
3- A personalized DOCS to each participating photographer incl. city map, day by day program different workshop's calendar, who is who phone number etc... To facilitate meetings.
4- A welcome meeting with all participating photographers to know each other & exchanging points of views. We hope you will turn these points into positive, we still remain at your entire disposal for any further cooperation.

  “The Sixth International Photography Gathering and Festival brought together a large cross section of photographers from all over the world including artists from Syria and the Arab world.

The Photography Gathering was distinguished by its open discussions in which all participants and visitors were invited to enjoy and involve themselves in this important aspect of the festival. The open discussions were about various cultures, religions, attitudes, customs and traditions. Thus, the aims of these discussions were to elevate the human soul, and to strive to attain the ideal of peace, freedom, and democracy.

The organizing committee of this festival chose on old building as the meeting place for this photography gathering. People of the generation from twentieth century found it of particular and special importance. This old structure formerly housed an electrical generator plant where the constant motion of its engines symbolized the coming of modernity for the older generation and technical progress, which brought light, motion and power to every single structure in Aleppo.

This festival brought together the old and the new, the machine and the soul, human energy and motion, the significance of which was highlighted by the photographs and the artistic works hung throughout the building.

The gathering is a splendid cultural phenomenon, which is renewed every year by virtue of the persistent care and the efforts of the organization committee and the participants. We have a greater need for these kinds of annual cultural gatherings, indeed, why not every season.”

  "بلا شك لقد أكد اللقاء الدولي الفوتوغرافي لحلب حضوره وفاعليته على الصعيدين العالمي والمحلي، وهو بلا شك أهم اللقاءات الفوتوغرافية في الشرق الأوسط. ولكن أتمنى في السنوات المقبلة أن تكون التغطية الإعلامية المحلية وخاصة العالمية على مستوى الحدث ولا تقل عنه أهمية، لكي يزداد قوة وفاعلية ويأخذ نصيبا أكبر من الدعاية والشهرة والتعريف بالفنانين خاصة السوريين على الصعيد العالمي والذين لا يقلون عن زملائهم العرب والغربيين قوة وفن".

  "أقدم الشكر لكل من يقدم الجهد لرفع اسم سوريا عاليا و بدوري أقدم الشكر للسيد عيسى توما الذي قدم الكثير من جهده لتحقيق المهرجان العالمي للتصوير الضوئي الذي ليس له مثيل في الدول المجاورة, و من خلاله أحيا معالم أثرية لتكن قابلة للاستخدام السياحي مثل مبنى الشيباني و شركة الكهرباء القديمة التي تعود إلى الفترة الفرنسية"

  "إن "اللقاء الفوتوغرافي الدولي" هو الوحيد من نوعه في منطقة الشرق الأوسط و يسد نقصا كبيرا في مجال أنشطة الفنون البصرية, خصوصا الفوتوغرافية منها و كم نحن بحاجة ماسة إليه لما يشكل من فرص لتجاربنا الفوتوغرافية العصرية, بمنأى عن الأهداف التجارية, كي تصل إلى الآخرين في أقاصي العالم.
إن هذا اللقاء, بمداه الإقليمي و العالمي, يمكننا من التعرف على تجارب عديدة و متنوعة, و يزيد من إمكانية تفاعل الإبداعات فيما بينها, في ظل غياب صحافة متخصصة في هذا المجال.
لذا, نطلب و بإلحاح, أن تكتب له الاستمرارية و ندعم بإخلاص جهود منظميه".
