“Do you want a photo?” You, Me, Us: “taking photos of each other”

Following the success of previous editions (5th edition), the La Gacilly Photo Festival and the Departmental Council of Morbihan – in partnership with the National Department for Education and the Diocesan Directorate for Catholic Education – once again asked local middle schools to participate in the middle school students’ photo festival. The creation of a festival for middle school students, integrated into the official festival programme, is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the work produced by pupils over the course of the year.

The project is above all an educational programme that uses photography as an artistic medium.

2017, 16 public and private middle schools from the department have been selected to participate in this edition: over 350 pupils (aged between 11 and 14) took part in the project, on the theme of portraits: “Do you want a photo?” You, Me, Us: “taking photos of each other.”
They have worked on creating this exhibition throughout the school year, with the support of their teachers and their photography mentors: Yvon Boëlle, Frédéric Mouraud, Gwenaël Saliou, Cédric Wachthausen, Eric Frotier de Bagneux and Hervé Le Reste.

From exploring the world of photography and selecting photos to studying the crucially important aspects of reflection and artistic outlook, they have discovered the many sides of the photographer’s profession.

We invite you to come and discover their creations, guided by the enthusiasm and originality of their work.
