The La Gacilly 2021 photography festival is now in its 18th edition, which will take place this summer in the small Breton town. Eco-responsible, committed, focused on the protection of the environment and human, the festival decides this year to espouse the cause of conservation of northern landscapes. The North feeds the fantasies of photographers but it is also a territory weakened by human action. By highlighting Scandinavian photographic talent, the La Gacilly festival is sounding the alarm and celebrating the carnal relationship between these artists and their wild, harsh and sublime land. Here is a small overview.
