In this world in which millions of digital images circulate, it seems pertinent to consider the printed photograph as the concretization of the artist’s vision.

The ambition of the Festival Papier[s]Photo is therefore to promote photographers who work with this medium, and make it exist.

We have selected six renowned photographers, carefully chosen various locations to exhibit their work, programmed technical and recreational workshops, and organised various encounters with enthusiastic professionals and amateurs.

Exhibitions will be on view from 19 - 25 August, and beyond, in some cases.
Yan Morvan’s can already be seen at the Philadelphe Thomas museum.

The workshops will take place on 20, 21 and 22 of August.

Masterclass at the Centre pour la photographie.
