19th Photo Festival La Gacilly

La Gacilly ·

01.06.22 → 30.09.22

The 19th edition of the Photo Festival La Gacilly highlights multiple Visions of the East from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Three countries that are not well known but that have conquered the hearts of all travelers who have ventured there, from Marco Polo to Kessel, from Chardin to Bouvier.
The Festival also pursues its vocation to question the current environmental and societal issues of our planet, with a program more than ever at the heart of people and nature.
