"A laboratory for observing territories through images"
Planche (s) Contact has positioned itself as one of the rare creative festivals and a real laboratory for observing the territory through images. From the 2019 edition, the festival opened up to the region, offering guest photographers the opportunity to explore beyond the city, the coast, the countryside, other urban agglomerations. At the same time, the festival, for ten years a creation laboratory and observatory of the evolution of photographic languages, proposes to deepen the reflection and research on the way of presenting photography. With this objective - and while waiting for the opening of the Franciscans, which will dedicate an important place to photography throughout the year - the city has been revisited in search of new places, such as the Villa Strassburger, the Hotel Barrière. Le Normandy, or outdoor spaces such as abandoned buildings, the diving board, the swimming pool ... paying particular attention to the dialogue between the projects and the spirit of the place.
