By participating, you are helping us finance the Festival Circulation(s) a “must” encounter of young European photography presented at CENTQUATRE from 26 March to 26 June 2016.
Organised by Fetart, an association comprising of a team of 35 volunteers, the Festival Circulation(s) offers a fresh perspective on Europe through photography. This unique event aims to highlight the talents of young European photographers and to create a network of people sharing the same ambition as Fetart: to help young photographers integrate the professional world and to allow the public to discover innovative contemporary artistic creation.
Since its creation in 2011, the festival has exhibited the works of more than 250 artists and welcomed nearly 250,000 visitors. A platform for young photographers, forward-looking and innovative laboratory of contemporary creativity, the festival has a special place in both the French and European photographic landscape. It is the only festival dedicated to photography in Paris.

This year the Festival Circulations(s) is returning to the CENTQUATRE in Paris from 26 March to 26 June 2016. In this centre, which has become a staple of the Parisian cultural scene, the festival has an opportunity to meet with the general public. The festival's programme revolves around a major exhibition presenting the work of 22 young European photographers who, following a call for candidates, were selected by a jury of image professionals under the guidance of agnès b., Godmother of this 2016 edition, and the Director of the CENTQUATRE José Manuel Gonçalves. A total of 51 photographers will present their works in the form of exhibitions, screenings, installations ...
Workshops, discussion meetings, portfolio reviews, the European Week of Photography Schools, the Little Circulations Exhibition/children games will also take place alongside the festival. Building on the success of the 2015 edition, the festival will be open to the public for three months in the CENTQUATRE's exhibition spaces.

The photo studio: every weekend, you can come and be photographed alone, or with family or friends by a professional photographer and in studio conditions!
Animated gifs: this is a new practice very in vogue on social media, of which a selection was made by a jury and will be screened during the festival.

To satisfy all photography appetites and follow our quest for quality, we have made the decision to increase the print run and to choose a more beautiful internal paper. The sum raised will allow us to cover the production costs (artwork, translation, photoengraving, making, printing).
This catalogue is a way for Fetart to serve its mission of promoting young photography. Because a beautiful book is also a way to help photographers.
