AGNÈS B.
Visions de Deauville (Perspectives of Deauville)

She has also invited, as associated artistic director of the Festival, two photographers to present their works in Deauville: Emma Charrin and Céline Villegas.

FRANÇOISE HUGUIER
C'EST PAS LOGIQUE, MAIS C'EST NORMAL (ILLOGICAL BUT NORMAL)

From Africa Fantôme to Polar Siberia, from the collective flats of Saint Petersburg to Seoul, and up to the borders of Grand Paris. For her intimate approach, Françoise Huguier is considered a documentary and sociological photographer, focusing on people.

CLAUDE NORI
Deauville, dolce vita !
Claude Nori, always travelling from Italian beaches to the Basque Coast, captures images of the dolce vita. His photo-biographical quest concerns Deauville’s seaside and pool atmospheres. His works are nourished by a glance, a smile, the curve of a skirt, happy people, a meeting. It’s so hard and powerful at the same time to capture happiness going by and fading quickly.

 

EXHIBITION PLACE: PROMENADE LUCIEN BARRIÈRE
Access from Boulevard Eugène Colas.
Open-air exhibition.

ASSOCIATED PROGRAM

A project conceived by Tina Dassault, curator, and implemented by Anna Vivante, photographer

Laisses de mer

Laisses de mer is a photographic project accurately identifying what is left by the sea on the sand: natural and human-made treasures and miseries. The images, as if they were proofs of sea archaeology, are not retouched. They must remain traces. Just the strict use of black-and-white and the emotions originating by analogue photography can reveal new perspectives.

 

EXHIBITION PLACE: VILLA ROXELANE
On the corner between Boulevard Cornuché and Rue Edmond Blanc.
Open every day from October 21st to November 5th, then on Saturdays and Sundays from 3 pm to 6 pm.

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out ©Emma Charrin, pour Planche(s) Contact 2017, Deauville

EMMA CHARRIN
THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT

For several years, the photographic technique of Emma Charrin has been characterized by a fascination for the spectacle. Her love for theatre, mockery, play, was involved into narration and cinematographic scenes in her first works, and then she focused more on a search about the notion of decor and its narration potential. Inspired by the history and the image of Deauville, and remaining coherent with her previous works, Emma Charrin questions the interruption of fiction in reality, studying people’s relation with the environment around them.

 

EXHIBITION PLACE: LE POINT DE VUE
On the corner between Rue Tristant Bernard and Boulevard de la Mer.
Open every day from October 21st to November 5th, then on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 am to 1 pm and from 2:30 pm to 7 pm.

CELINE VILLEGAS
IL NOUS FAUT REVENIR (WE MUST COME BACK)

The seaside universe has always been inspiring for Céline Villegas, used to capture landscapes. Her suggestive photographs discover the water environment, find in this secret environment fragments of hanging bodies and scenes full of poetry. The contrast between colours and matters, and these funny scenes taken from life inspire fantasy. She shares a warm and unique perspective on reality - without any documentary purpose -, an invigorating and light dive into the seaside baths of Deauville.
