Attention to Reality

PRESENTED ON DEC 02, 2015
IN NANTES @ VOL 11
The Quinzaine Photographique Nantaise was born in 1997. Since then the festival is held every September. During a month (15 days in the early years) various exhibitions with a common theme are open to the public.

2016 will therefore be the year of its 20th anniversary.

Photography is a medium which is intimately connected to reality and a reproduction tool, but it is above all a form of language that draws its evocative power beyond words. The QPN favors this strong link to reality. The field of exploration of our festival is not disconnected from what matters in our lives.

Making meaningful programming choices, showing the plurality of expressions while drawing parallels between the works exhibited, and in the end producing a coherent and understandable project that we will enjoy sharing.
APPLAUD THIS!
