An edition dedicated to French photographic creation.
“At a time when culture is being undermined by the health situation, we have decided to completely revise the programme of this 9th edition and to dedicate its entirety to a dozen authors and artists from France. It seemed ESSENTIAL to us to present a selection, necessarily subjective, of authors of French photographic creation and to support, through this visibility, a seriously weakened sector. (…)
We are pleased to be able to offer you the opportunity to discover the city a little more thanks to a new exhibition space – the Hall des Sources – which enriches this photographic journey in a wonderful way. This is a particularly pleasing prospect on the eve of the tenth anniversary of Portrait(s)… ”

Fany Dupêchez,
Artistic Director
