Until December 17, the festival Chroniques Nomade moved to the Saint-Germain abbey for its second edition in Auxerre, France. Celebrating travel photography, Chroniques Nomades puts “in perspective the works of photographers who have made this one the very condition of an authentic look on the Other, on themselves, on our culture and our world. ”
Its program proposes a double interpretation of the word voyage. On one hand, a series of exhibitions brings together a dozen authors around a geography of travel, from the Middle East to Africa. On the other hand, a second set of exhibitions addresses the theme of travel as a time gone by, fantasized, imagined or not.
Do not miss the fascination of Anita Andrzejewska for the countries and societies of Southeast Asia, the amused spinning of strangers in the series The passengers of Jean-Pierre Favreau or the night life in Congolese major cities, captured by Gilles Perrin. Also worthy of note is François Louchet’s fictional research, which has gone back to Dersou Ouzala, the hero of Vladimir Arseniev’s novel, and then to Akira Kurosawa’s film. An exhibition tribute to the photographer Sabine Weiss is also offered to the curious.
