With Portrait(s), the city of Vichy steps into the world of photography for the fourth
consecutive year, an international exhibition and photographic meet-up, from 15 June until 9 September, the only
exhibition in France to focus exclusively on the art of the portrait.
Presenting an entire spectrum of different ways of seeing, it celebrates the portrait in its every form, from
the most classical to the most trendy, building on both traditions of documentary type of
photography and more conceptual or fictional schemes, and thus offering a splendid
group of exhibitions that are both demanding and mainstream.
Approach you subject, face to face : question his identity and capture his mindset. Treat him in whatever manner you find appropriate. Play with distances, bring out his traits with a neutral background, try and match the scenery with his personality. Behind a face, there are so many tales to tell and countless ways to tell them.
Ready, set, portrait ! The jury -comprised of Dimitri Beck (Editor in Chief at Polka Magazine), Geoffroy Dubois (Directeur of Paris-Beijing Galery), the representatives of the Festival Portrait(s) and the Wipplay team will select the 3 winners. Only series consisting of at least 8 images will be eligible for the 1st prize.For additional information, please check the guidelines.
