From 4 April to 11 May 2019, the works of emerging photographers from around the world will be displayed for the festival’s 25th anniversary edition. 14 exhibitions in various venues around the town allow visitors to encounter a diverse range of artists such as Laura Bonnefous, Svetlana Khatchatourova, Dana Stölzgen, Sébastien Normand, Karen Miranda Rivadeneira, Mana Kikuta, Paul Chapellier and Filip Przewozny, to name but a few.
