Itinéraires des photographes voyageurs Since 1991, the association " Itinéraires des photographes voyageurs " (animated by the founder Nathalie Lamire Fabre and by Vincent Bengold) proposes every April in Bordeaux- free for the public & between seven to fifteen photographic exhibitions in the main cultural places of the city. To participate, a photography genre of the author and a theme about travelling are given more privilege. Apart from that, no limit. The selection of exhibitions is done by the team's favorites. Each year, the program is composed of singular exhibitions: from classical humanist photography to a more "contemporary" photography, the association " Itinéraires des photographes voyageurs " is animated by a will of eclecticism. "Recognized" photographers agree to join us for an exhibition: Cartier-Bresson, Max Pam, Jean Dieuzaide, Bernard Plossu, Raymond Depardon ... But the association also wants to support artists less known to the general public, especially young artists from Aquitaine like Sarah Caron, Christophe Goussard, Garat Polo, Jacques Sierpinski, Philippe Pons or Stéphane Klein ... One criterion, the singularity of looks. Fidelity is also highlighted by the association, the one with our partners (The City Council of Bordeaux, the Goethe Institute, the Cervantes Institute, the Swiss Consulate, the municipal library and the museums of Bordeaux, the Mercure Hotel Bordeaux Château Chartrons, Fip ..) and also with photographers and professionals of photography (the association image people ...) who support us for several years. Since 2000, " Itinéraires des photographes voyageurs " has been associated with the company Pixels and Grains d'Argent which proposes to the public all tools of communication, a website presenting the wholesome exposure is more than 6000 photographs in line. website
The Anonymous Project In 2017 when filmmaker Lee Shulman bought a random box of vintage slides he fell completely in love with the people and stories he discovered in these unique windows in to our past lives. Collecting and preserving unique colour slides from the last 70 years, the project was born out of a desire to preserve this collective memory and give a second life to the people often forgotten in these timeless moments captured in stunning Kodachrome colour. From the period of the early 1950s, when prices for color photography had dropped to where it became accessible to non-professionals, to the rise of digital cameras, color photography soon developed into the dominant medium to capture daily life. Not just weddings and graduations, or friends posing for friends, or families gathering for portraits, but everything. The magic of color photography is that when the chemicals on the film are exposed to light, color is created. The problem is that these chemicals degrade over time, eventually leaving no trace of the image. Most color slides will not survive beyond 50 years. Unless urgent action is taken, this colorful piece of our collective memory, artifacts of daily life from the 40's up through the digital age, will fade out of existence altogether. These amateur photographs are a kaleidoscopic diary of that era, all the more fascinating and arresting because of their unpolished quality. Often funny, surprising and touching these images tell the stories of all our lives. The Anonymous Project has in turn become an artistic endeavour that seeks to give meaning to these once forgotten memories and create new ways of interpretation and story telling that question our place in the world today. website

RMMRN Réunion des musées métropolitains Rouen Normandie Since January 1st, 2016, nine museums met under the aegis of the Metropolis Rouen Normandy in Rouen, the museum of the Fine art, museum of natural history, the museum of Ceramics, the Secq des Tournelles museum, museum of Antiquities and Joan of Arc Tower, to Elbeuf the Factory of the knowledges, in Petit Couronne the Pierre Corneille museum and to Notre-Dame-de-Bondeville the Vallois ropeworks museum. This initiative aims at protecting the heritage existing for the future generations, but also to revisit him, to emphasize him patiently, and so to renew ceaselessly the desire, the pleasure, the curiosity, the rise which we win to frequent these exceptional heritage. In each of these establishments conjugates at the same time the big History and that of its territory. We take up with the encyclopedic knowlege there which is originally even of the notion of museum, but also the unique testimonies of the genius of the great masters as that of the anonymous craftsmen. So many places to get fresh ideas, to stimulate the imagination and the creativity, to understand the evolution of companies and go back to the sources of the big debates of the contemporary world. Because these treasures of the Metropolis Rouen Normandy, collected and protected through centuries, have a universal value, the access to the permanent collections is from now on free, for all, all year long. In it is added a rich programming of exhibitions temporary as that visible until September 26th, 2016 to the Museum of the Fine art of Rouen : scenes from impressionist life. It is around these "scenes" of life and the intimacy that Wipplay and the museum it are associated to throw a big competition photo this summer. website
