EVENTS - 2013

PHOTOGRAPHER TOUR

Taking place from August 15 to 21, the Photographer Tour offers public get-togethers on the subject of creation, either in the form of photo projections and a film or else by way of lecture-discussions, in which some 30 photographers will be participating. The event will open at the Quai des arts in Carleton-sur-Mer. The Tour will continue the next day towards the north shore of the Gaspé before heading to among other places the towns of Gaspé and Percé, before winding up in Baie-des-Chaleurs. Read more...

Projection evenings make for extraordinary get-togethers among visitors, photographers and the local population. By way of projections on different buildings or attractions, municipality facilities are used in radically new ways in the service of art.

The get-togethers with the artists provide the public with a chance to get to know photographers’ artistic approaches, and thereby gain a better understanding of photography generally.
