DESIRES AND PLEASURES...

The International Festival of Fashion Photography, a unique rendezvous dedicated to fashion, takes place in Cannes for its ninth consecutive edition. Monumental pictures are exhibited in the town: in the Croisette in Cannes, as in the heart of the neighbouring palm grove, the Port Canto rose garden where is presented, as each year, the Festival guest of honour’s work as well as an exhibition of his/her large format printings.

This year, the International Festival of Fashion Photography is pleased to invite the great fashion photographer TYEN, great photographer of fashion and beauty, graphic images, vibrating colours. In the meantime, the Palm Beach Casino, main partner of this event, hosts on its cymas the 2011 selection of contemporary photography creation. Ninety fashion photographers from different backgrounds present their creations on 1 m x 1.50 m printings.

The jury of the 2011 edition of the International Festival of Fashion Photography is composed of key figures belonging to the world of photography such as Peter KNAPP, artistic director, Jean-Luc MONTEROSSO, director of The European House of Photography in Paris, Fred RAWYLER, artistic director. They will give three awards according to the creativity, imagination and daring of the artists’ work –
their ability to fire one’s imagination.

The 2011 Fashion Photography Special Prize will be awarded to a confirmed artist and another 2011 Fashion Photography Prize will be given to a Young Talent.

A special prize is also be awarded to the guest of the Festival.

Fashion photography, freeing itself from the pages of the magazines for the monumental open-air exhibition gallery, fully blossoms and asserts itself as the real creation of an artist and of desire, whether seductive or provocative, from the viewpoint of the walkers, the professionals, or the fashion and art photography amateurs.
