Fête de la Photo, modelled on the open and accessible Fête de la Musique, indulges photography and its various forms. This festival aims to celebrate the photographic as much as the photograph. It brings together photographers, amateurs and professionals, and photography enthusiasts, from India and France to create a dialogue around photographic practice and image making. The festival will encourage initiatives in public spaces by drawing attention to the medium of photography.
The history of photography is embedded in the cultural history of France
From the earliest surviving photographs of Niépce to the aesthetic realism of Bresson, France has been an important contributor in blossoming photography into an art form. India, on the other hand has been a fascinating subject for photographers. Many European photographers have reflected on India to develop some of their best works.. Through collaborations with a diverse group of arts organizations and artists, the festival will bring both experimental and traditional art to the public in outdoor, indoor and online platforms.
