Photomed – 2nd edition

Sanary-sur-Mer ·

24.05.12 → 17.06.12

Festival of discovery and rediscovery, Photomed has, for its second edition, chosen as guest country Morocco and, as guest of honor, the Italian Massimo Vitali. Still little known to the general public, the Moroccan photographic creation brings together photographers who, often divided between two shores, question their identity.
Projections, workshops and readings of por tfolio complete this panorama of discoveries and novelties that form the framework of this second edition.
Divided between myth, dream and reality, photography in the Mediterranean remains, more than ever like the novel, “a fabulous mirror that we walk along a great road”.

Artistic director : Jean-Luc Monterosso
