Phot'Aix 2019 - Festival of photography

Aix en Provence - Audiovisuel - photographie - From November 7th to December 28th - Free

Now in its 19th year, Phot'Aix invites visitors to explore contemporary Austrian photography.

Simultaneously with the "Regards Croisés" exhibition, from 4 October to 10 November, the Fontaine Obscure is organising a series of exhibitions in the streets of Aix-en-Provence in the form of a themed visit: "Les Voyages Immobiles", "L'Amour" and "Vanité", as well as a special exhibition of Austrian photographers. This crucial event in the Aix cultural landscape takes place in a spirit of exchange, highlighting the work of famous or lesser-known artists. Photography focusing on proximity and going out to meet the public. A chance to visit the town and explore the urban environment and art in a friendly atmosphere.

PHOT'AIX, Photography Festival, organised in Aix-en-Provence by La Fontaine Obscure, aims to take up a double challenge:

  • To promote contemporary photography by fostering encounters between French and overseas artists as part of the international exhibition "Regards Croisés"
  • To bring photography into the street and help new talents to emerge, by organising Thematic Photographic Visits in and around Aix-en-Provence.
