Portrait(s)

This 8th edition of the Portrait(s) festival – a somewhat special event this season – maintains its ambition: reinvent the millenary art of portraiture through the singular perspective of multi-talented and multi-cultural photographers, who accept to immerse their works in the daily life of the city of Vichy from July 17 to October 25, 2020.

Charles Freger will be the first to occupy the spaces of Vichy with Cimarron, the third part of a series devoted to masquerades around the world. Behind the spectacular costumes, finery and masks, these ceremonies that cross African, indigenous and post-colonial cultures, to be seen as intense moments when the ghosts of former captives are freed from centuries-old oppression.

From September 5, a program of 10 additional exhibitions will welcome: Rima Samman, Ed Alcock, Chris Steele-Perkins, Claudine Doury, Bruce Wrighton, Arlene Gottfried, Paul Pouvreau, Sébastien Camboulive, Alexis Cordesse and Danielle Levitt, around a photographic journey that goes from the documentary corpus to intimate approaches.
