From May 17th to June 3rd, documentary photography will be front and center in Sète in the south of France. For its fourth edition the ImageSingulières festival will present a dozen exhibitions across the city, with Sète itself becoming the subject of Christopher Anderson’s blue, white and red photographs.
To mark the fiftieth anniversary of its independence, Algeria will be one of the major themes of the festival, which features Marc Riboud’s photographs from the 1960s, as well as more contemporary visions of the country by Bruno Boudjelal, Katia Kameli and Omar D.
The duty of memory will occupy another important space at the festival, with portraits by Jan Banning and Ansel Adams, which pay tribute to victims of World War II.
Viewers will have the pleasure to discover pictures by Jules-Edouard Moustic and other classic photographers like Gilles Carron, Léon Gimpel and his autochromes. The work of other European photographers will also be on display, including Tom Wood, Stephan Vanfleteren, and the duo Alessandro Albert and Paolo Verzone.
Among the group exhibitions, one will be entirely devoted to Latin America and feature the work of Sebastián Liste on Brazil, Rafael Trobat on Nicaragua, and Patrick Bard at the Tortilla Wall.
