PHOTOGRAPHER TOUR – AUGUST 20 TO 23, 2015

At the heart of Rencontres, the Photographer Tour is a one-of-a-kind event that brings together visitors, photographers and the local population on the Gaspé territory. It presents public gatherings on the subject of creation in the form of photo projections, lecture-discussions and roundtables, with the participation of some twenty photographers. Thanks to projections on a variety of buildings and attractions, municipality facilities are used in a brand-new way in the service of art.
