Open Air Photo Festival

Share:

The 19th edition of La Gacilly (June 1 to September 30, 2022) presents dynamic visions from the Far and Middle East. This year’s festival places a strong focus on female voices. Fatimah Hossaini celebrates the strength and beauty of Afghan women by showing them in all of their expressive vibrancy. Iranian photographer Maryam Firuzi explores the concealment of women’s bodies: in her intricate montages, women’s faces are framed not by a veil, but natural materials such as foliage or shells.  
The programme also includes two major retrospectives dedicated to the oeuvres of Abbas and Véronique de Viguerie.

Ethics and sustainability, people and nature have always been at the heart of La Gacilly. This year, the festival introduces a new programme of photographic commissions launched by the Yves Rocher Foundation, which aims to raise awareness of the destruction of natural habitats around the world: biodiversity – the cornerstone of all life on Earth – is threatened due to human greed and unbridled development. On the premise that it is our duty to ensure sustainability for future generations, the Yves Rocher Foundation has launched a new campaign (set to run until 2024), which aims to raise awareness and advocate for the protection of natural habitats around the world. Part I of this ambitious campaign – an extraordinary, long-term series by Mélanie Wenger captured in the French Southern and Antarctic Lands – will be showcased at this year’s La Gacilly festival.
