14th Photo Festival La Gacilly

03.06.17 → 30.09.17

I love Africa
In 2017, the Festival Photo La Gacilly introduces us to the most beautiful photographic talents, from the African continent, too often ignored, but whose hyper-creativity is now recognised on the international scene.
Because our ecosystems are threatened, because many species of vertebrates are doomed to extinction, and because our societies are witnessing the emergence of new debates such as anti-speciesism or anthropocentrism, the programme also looks at the new relationships that are taking shape between Man and animals.
