PLANCHE(S) CONTACT 2017

Festival of photographic creation

Created in 2010, Planche(s) contact presents the works of photographers invited in residence in Deauville to match their photographic universe with the city. This festival, year after year, arouses and associates the crossed perspectives of renowned photographers, emerging photographers and young talents.

All these perspectives, as different and varied as the photographic techniques implemented, represent colour or black-and-white landscapes or portraits, photo-reportages, narrations or fictions. Every year, they provide a renewed overview of what a city may be, expressing the diversity of its settings, of its emblematic or unknown areas, of its events and rhythms, of its inhabitants and visitors.
