The 8th edition of the Portrait(s) Festival takes place in the French city of Vichy from July 17 to October 25, 2020.
Among the highlights of this year’s edition is an open-air exhibition by French photographer Charles Fréger, who has captured his subjects in masks and costumes rooted in African folkloric traditions. Also on display is a series by British photographer Chris Steele-Perkins, who documented the resurgence of the ‘Teddy Boys’ in the 1970s. Further showcases include a visual commentary on Brexit by Anglo-French photographer Ed Alcock, powerful portraits of officer cadets by Italian photographer Paolo Verzone, and the pop-culture study ‘We Are Experienced’ by US-American photographer Danielle Levitt.
From September 5, the Vichy Cultural Centre presents colorised family photographs by French-Libyan artist Rima Samman, along with visual studies by Claudine Doury on the topic of adolescence. The programme also includes projects by Ed Alcock, Bruce Wrighton, Arlene Gottfried, Paul Pouvreau, Sébastien Camboulive and Alexis Cordesse.
