Planche(s) Contact 3

Edition 2012

And why not ? Why not turn to magazine or even fashion photographers to photograph Deauville ?
They are accustomed to commissions, but also to commercial contingencies, and above all have a capacity for smuggling art in at that same time…
This year, for this third edition of Planche(S) Contact, we have called upon photographers who one usually encounters in magazines (but also in galleries and museums), such as Paolo Roversi, a « fashion portraitist », as he likes to define himself, and an unquestionable star of the genre for more than twenty years. Alongside him, the younger generation is represented by the Canadian Kourtney Roy, who stages
herself in her images and plays with the nostalgia of the 60s with brio. Simon Procter, a lover of horses, has spectacularly captured three of the town’s more privileged equestrian moments. Tania and Vincent also diffuse their inspired still-lives in magazines or for luxury brands. Finally, the laureate of last year’s Louis Roederer Foundation prize, Kate Fichard, who doesn’t work for magazines –but it can only be a matter of time–, continues to explore Deauville with her sharp and pertinent eye. A long way from magazines, Filip Dujardin, with a humor worthy of the Belgian surrealists whose heritage he lays claim to, has metamorphosed the architecture and landscapes of Deauville: ferocious !
