The gardens, lanes and squares of Baden are turned into a “city of pictures“. 2018 in particular, pictures from African photographic studios recount the dreams of the people who live south of the Sahara. On the other, long-term reports tell us about moving and surprising relations between humans and animals.
Jacques Rocher, today President of the Fondation Yves Rocher, initiated this annual photo festival in 2004 in his birthplace of La Gacilly in Brittany. Photographer and publisher Lois Lammerhuber initiated the cooperation with Baden to start in 2018. The Festival 2018 is the start of an exclusive cooperation between La Gacilly and Baden. The photo festival will be shown every summer, first in La Gacilly and then in Baden one year later. So the exhibition shown in France in 2018 will be presented in Baden in 2019. And this rhythm is to continue. Thus the works of the world’s best photographers can be admired first on the western periphery of the continent and then in the heart of Europe.
