PhotoSaintGermain 2021 – L ‘Eyeil de la Photographie Magazine

This new chapter of PhotoHolyGermainis to continue and deploy what we have been building for several years. The galleries will continue to offer a rich and eclectic program, reflecting the diversity of photographic practices. Several exhibitions and original projects are also designed by PhotoHolyThe Germaine team. You can push the door of the Sasori Bar inspired by the legendary Kodoji Bar, an underground and secret place where Tokyo photographers met, discover the Fantographies at the Maison d’Auguste Comte, stroll in front of the boxes of booksellers Bandini Books editions, then walk between The imaginary pyramids ” the fantastic pyramids ”by René Burri on the banks of the Seine.

To this ambitious program is added the desire to give a voice to those who make and think about photography today. This living word is decisive in extending what takes place in the exhibitions and grasping the contemporary issues of the image. PhotoSaintGermain is hosting a program of meetings and debates for this new year and has, for the first time, entrusted curator and editor Inès de Bordas with the production of a podcast. The interest in books and editorial practices, central for years, has led people to bet on mobility.

For its 10th edition, the PhotoHolyThe Germain route extends its field of exploration of photographic creation beyond its left bank anchorage, crosses the Seine, and extends to the right bank.

This extended route, from ÃŽle Saint-Louis to rue Chapon, echoes the Left Bank, the historic publishers district. Today, on the Right Bank, a dynamic map of the creative dialogue between books and photography is emerging.

The common thread that gives the book offers stops in bookstores redesigned by gallery owners, in situ invitations from a new generation of publishers, bookstores-galleries, unique collections of books. From curating books, sometimes rare, to exhibition books, there are so many links and current forms – limited edition, artist’s book, book-work, or self-published, which regenerate the place of the book in photographic creation. .

The path is led by Valérie Fougeirol.
