The 11th edition of festival Images Singulières opens this Wednesday May 29th in Sète, France.
This festival puts under the spotlight documentary photography, an annual meeting not to be missed, to discover the most fascinating photographs produced recently.
Cétàvoir, the association behind the festival, puts forward committed photographers who want to share their experiences from across the world with curious people.
This year, the residency was granted to British photographer Vanessa Winship, the only woman to have been awarded the prestigious Cartier-Bresson award in 2011.
This edition features prominently new documentary writings that combine photography, anthropology, journalism and archives, with three projects. “Red Utopias”, from publisher ESSARTER, is about politic utopias in Eastern Europe, “Is this tomorrow” is on the consequences of the Cold War in Latin AMerica, from the point of view of three South American artists, and “A Study of Assassination” from George Selley.
