CLAUDE NORI
Deauville, dolce vita!
From Italian beaches to the Basque coast, the images of Claude Nori are those of the Dolce Vita. His photobiographical quest revolves around the baths and basins of Deauville. It feeds on a look, a smile, the curve of a skirt, happy people, a meeting. So strong and so difficult at the same time to photograph a happiness that passes and flees too quickly!

Access by boulevard Eugène Colas.
Outdoor exhibition.

VASANTHA YOGANANTHAN
MERIPHERIE
Vasantha Yogananthan is part of this young generation that blurs the lines between reality and fiction. In Deauville, he went to meet the families who live on the beach for a day. This series of portraits, produced in the bedroom, favors long time and staging. His use of color, in almost neutral pastel tones, gives an unexpected sweetness to these scenes of life, and a symbolic force to these portraits of men and women who make the beach of Deauville, a succession of personal stories.

EXHIBITION PLACE: PETIT PASSIN
Adjoining Place Claude Lelouch, opposite the municipal tennis courts.
Outdoor exhibition.

ASSOCIATED PROGRAM

A project designed by Tina Dassault, curator, directed by Anna Vivante photographer

Sea leashes

Sea leashes is a photographic project that lists an inventory. Word for word what the sea leaves, finds - treasures and miseries - natural and anthropogenic. The images, like a new archeology of the sea, are not touched up. They want to be traces. Only the radical choice of black and white and the emotion of film will indicate the possibility of another path.

EXHIBITION PLACE: VILLA ROXELANE
At the corner of boulevard Cornuché and rue Edmond Blanc.
Open every day from October 21 to November 5, then Saturdays and Sundays 15 p.m.> 18 p.m.

EMMA CHARRIN
THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT

Fascinated by the spectacle and the decor, through her photographic series Emma Charrin sows the confusion between real life and dreamed life. Inspired by the euphoria of Deauville in the Roaring Twenties, Emma Charrin questions the position of the inhabitant, actor, spectator. In this dream city, in the rhythm of the night, are we awake or asleep? Is this border between fiction and reality perceptible? Physical, moral, psychological, social border? It is up to the spectator to find their place.

PLACE OF EXHIBITION: THE POINT OF VIEW
At the corner of rue Tristant Bernard and boulevard de la Mer.
Open daily from October 21 to November 5, then Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 13 p.m. and from 14:30 p.m. to 19 p.m.

CELINE VILLEGAS
WE MUST COME BACK

The seaside universe never ceases to inspire Céline Villegas, accustomed to territorial portraits. Full of mischief, his photographs take hold of the aquatic environment, cut out from this environment in closed spaces fragments of suspended bodies and scenes imbued with poetry. The contrast of colors and materials, and these funny scenes caught on the spot arouse the imagination. A warm and unique look at reality, without documentary aims. An invigorating and light dive in the Deauville baths.
