On the theme “The nature of man: crafting the real,” the 4th edition of Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie, summer of 2013, is an invitation to journey over the peninsula and follow the artistic trajectory of over 30 photographers from here and elsewhere ::
The 2013 Rencontres brings together artists who are interested in representing the real in ways that are distorted, transformed or modified, and in so doing stimulating new perceptions in viewers. Any number of avenues have been made available to the creators to consider the way in which individuals live in their environment and the manner in which they comprehend it.
At the heart of the event, the Photographer Tour will run from August 15 to 21. Some 30 photographers will take part in public get-togethers on the subject of creation, in the form of projections or lecture-discussions. The event will open at the Quai des arts in Carleton-sur-Mer, and then the Tour will continue towards the north shore of the Gaspé Peninsula, making its way to among other places the towns of Gaspé and Percé, and then on to Baie-des-Chaleurs.
The public is therefore invited to visit the installations and exhibits from July 10 to September 11 in 14 host municipalities: Cap-Chat, Marsoui, Grande-Vallée, Gaspé, Murdochville, Percé, Chandler, Paspébiac, Bonaventure, New Richmond, Maria, Carleton-sur-Mer, Nouvelle and Matapédia.
