The Portrait Festival in the French town of Vichy is taking place for the second time, from June 13 to August 31.
Last year the festival in the Auvergne region drew over 25,000 visitors. From documentary portrait photography, to staged portraits, from intimate pictures to conceptual photographic art, the artistic range presented during the festival is very large.
Viewers are invited to explore and study the diverse facets of portrait photography. The works of eight photographers in total – including Jean-Loup Sieff, Bruce Gilden, Michael Wolf, Jim Naughten, Martina Bacigalupo and Claudia Huidobro – reveal the different approaches given to this genre.
