NEW EXHIBITION: LIGHT AND SHADOW
1 JUNE – 30 SEPTEMBER 2022
The La Gacilly Photo Festival in Britanny, France, will present, in collaboration with Fonds Abbas Photos and Magnum Photos, a major retrospective of Abbas’ work. Abbas’ journalistic images will be displayed alongside lesser-known, more contemplative shots taken of people and their environment. Entitled Light and Shadow, this exhibition of 50 black-and-white large format photographs will present the incessant collisions between reality and myth, derision and fanaticism, chaos and beauty, gentleness and sadness, and shadow and light that defined his work.
Founded in 2004, the La Gacilly Photo Festival is an immersive photographic experience with over 20 open-air galleries presenting contemporary photographic creations that question man’s relationship with the world and the natural environment. In this 19th edition of the festival, more than a thousand photographs will adorn the streets, gardens and alleys of La Gacilly, a commune in the Morbihan department of Brittany in north-western France. The theme of this year’s festival is Visions of the East, with focus on the work of photographers from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
