Planches Contact 2023 – The Public Programme


From October 21st to January 7th, 2024, for its 14th edition, 25 international photographers, both established and emerging, can be discovered in an open-air exhibition tour throughout the city, on the beach, and indoors at Point de Vue and Les Franciscaines.

The aim of Planches Contact is to support creation through a residency program based in Deauville. Serving as the starting point for an exploration of the identity of the region, as well as the personal research and questions of the photographers related to the environment, all set against the backdrop and fields of investigation of Normandy, from Dieppe to Mont-Saint-Michel, from the coast to the inland areas. This year, the invited artists were encouraged to seek new ways of looking at and representing reality.
