THE OFF EXHIBITIONS
The "Off" of Planche(s) Contact welcomes every day about fifteen photographic exhibitions produced by photographers living for part of the year in Deauville, or by groups and associations of enthusiasts about photography. Deauville and its features remain the central theme of this section led by photographers knowing very well the city and its atmosphere. The exhibitions take place in private places, galleries, hotels...from October 20th to November 27th.

Béatrice Augier
Ma plage (My beach)

Joy and desertion are experienced like nowhere else. The beach makes us dream. People from all over the world have been waiting for months these few moments of simple and absolute joy.
"I have the luck to live close to a large beach that, during sunny summer weekends, is shared by some a priori different and sometimes even opposite people. They reach this huge beach, take their shoes off and breathe a sigh of delight as soon as their feet touch the fine and warm sand.
I have spent entire days observing these people, as it is striking to see to what extent these groups with completely different habits and origins feel the same need to create a sort of beach camps. This elegant Beach, situated very close to Paris, favorite week-end destination of Parisian citizens throughout the year, becomes the perfect place for any kinds of people, who enjoy here an extremely peaceful atmosphere, that of shared joy”.
