… an annual outdoor photography festival in Brittany.
Hosted in Loguivy-de-la-Mer, it intends first and foremost to share a new view of the region through the lens and sensitivity of a photographer invited from afar to discover the region and its people in an artistic residency.
… is a response to Loguivy’s desire for openness and socio-cultural exchange; an artistic creation and environmental preservation of a site as special as the Côtes-d’Armor, where sailors and farmers live at the rhythm of “L’estran”.
Estran, between land and sea, being the first edition’s subject put forward, not only aims to initiate an intercultural and artistic dialogue but raises the question of respect for this natural heritage for those who live there and also for all those who, in love with the region, spend time there…
In welcoming a foreign photographer from a new country each year, with his own culture and experience at heart, the festival highlights the encounters and exchanges between locals and resident, bringing together artistic sensibilities that are distant both geographically and culturally…
The subject put forward of the “estran, between land and sea” raises the question of respect for our natural environment, for those who live there and also for all those who, as lovers of the region, spend time there…
Through this open-air exhibition, BZH PHOTO wants first and foremost to offer a new view of the region through the sensitivity of a foreign artist whose gaze makes us rediscover the region and its inhabitants from a new angle…
In the centre of the festival, the guest photographer’s new series will be displayed around the port of Loguivy. The images, printed on canvas, displayed like flags, move freely with the wind up until September 30th 2020!
In addition to the opening of the exhibition on July 31st from 6pm, the festival invites night owls to enjoy photography at night on the beautiful monuments of Armor and Argoat.
Evenings of photo-projections will be taking place in
· the port of Loguivy-de-la-Mer (31.7)
· the abbey of Koad Mallouen (8.8)
· the river banks of Pontrieux (15. 8)
· the centre d’art GwinZegal in Guingamp (21.8)
· the temple of Lanleff (22.8)
and hopefully others before the dismantling at the end of September.
If you would like to help us carry out this project. Feel free to donate to the festival, it would warm our hearts!
Thank you all for the wonderful first edition!
See you all on July 31st for BZH PHOTO 2020!
