17th Photo Festival La Gacilly

01.07.20 → 30.10.20

For its 17th edition, the Festival Photo La Gacilly, celebrates Latin America and brings to light a photography impregnated by the complexity of its history, crossed by revolutions and hopes, by the tangle of its customs, between Western dreams and shamanic beliefs, by the ardour of its society, marked by violence and a formidable desire to live. All these photographers, from Brazil, Ecuador, Chile, Mexico, or Argentina, are rooted in everyday life, showing the diversity of people, exploring urban chaos, denouncing a nature that has been damaged, without being devoid of poetry, inventiveness or humour.
