Every year, 200 large-format photographs are displayed continuously for four months on 700 m² of outdoor exhibition space.
An Engaged Festival
The Photo Peuples & Nature Festival in La Gacilly was created in 2004 by Jacques Rocher, a photography enthusiast particularly attentive to the protection of nature. This festival, which attracts nearly 300,000 visitors, has set itself the mission of raising public awareness of today's and tomorrow's environmental challenges.
Internationally renowned photographers who exhibit their shots in the streets, gardens, and on the walls of La Gacilly thus bring images from all corners of the world that are in line with the committed spirit of the festival. These photographs are intended to raise awareness of the massive destruction of natural habitats and to testify to the initiatives undertaken, locally or globally, to preserve the environment.
The Peuples & Nature Photo Festival of La Gacilly takes place from June 1st to October 1st, 2023 in this village in Morbihan, close to the cities of Rennes, Nantes and Vannes.
This 2023 edition of the festival will take place from June 1st to October 1st, 2023 on the theme "Nature as Heritage".
This edition will be an opportunity to discover the work of many photography artists.
The Guimet Museum (National Museum of Asian Arts), in partnership with the Kyotographie Festival, presents two series of photos: "The Tea Road" and "Last Samurai, First Photographs".
