A CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY BACKGROUND

The third component of the Franciscan collections is contemporary photography. Rich in its history with the greatest photographers throughout the century, Deauville created in 2010 the Photographic Creation Festival Board (S) Contact, the only festival in France to rely on public commissions and therefore an artistic production specific to Deauville. This space of creation allows the City to have today a vast contemporary background including, among others, images of Massimo Vitali, Paolo Roversi, David Amstrong or Kishin Shinoyama. It also continues to acquire prints of photographs taken in Deauville by the most influential photographers of the century.

THE RESOURCES OF A MEDIA LIBRARY

Fourth component, the Deauville media library - currently online - already includes a collection of 70 documents including 000 cataloged books / books, around 40 CDs and 000 DVDs, a toy library.

SPECIALIZED FUNDS

In addition to these collections, there are two specialized funds: a specialized fund on the Memory of Deauville following numerous digital donations and a specialized fund on the horse made up of donations and acquisitions made during auctions. The long-term objective is to create a reference fund in a city where this sector is a major sector of the economy.
