Planches Contact is a unique photography festival based on public order. The photographers invited to Deauville for a residency match their universe with the city and more broadly with the coastline, the countryside or the urban agglomerations of the Normandy region. Following the artists’ residencies, their work is then exhibited from October to January.
In this way, in just a few years, the event has become a real laboratory dedicated to the observation of the territory through photography.
With In Lumine, Pierre-Elie de Pibrac takes us on a cinematic journey along the Normandy coast. In this series, the photographer invites the viewer to discover, or rediscover, Normandy through films such as: Un singe en hiver, Quai des Brumes, Les Valseuses, Le jour le plus long or La Boum and, more recently, Eté 85. In Lumine is a testimony to a cinematographic past that plays with the codes of photography and our relationship to the image, using both traditional and more recent shooting techniques.
