From 19 to 25 August 2022 Gaillac will be hosting the Festival Papier [s] Photo, an event that celebrates photographic printing and, of course, the paper itself.
Visitors will be able to stroll through the town admiring the large posters in the streets as well as taking in a range of exhibitions of work by national, international and emerging artists. One exhibition, at the museum, entitled “France, terre d’humains et de paysages” (France, land of people and landscapes) will feature the work of photographer Yan Morvan. At the “Loin de l’œil” gallery, visitors can enjoy an exhibition entitled “Talents émergents” (Emerging talents).
There will also be workshops, master classes and different activities and events. The public will be able to try their hand at various traditional or contemporary techniques such as piezography® for example, at a Master Class workshop at the Centre de la Photographie at Château l’Hom. The paper used at this workshop will be ARCHES® Aquarelle hot pressed 640 gsm bright white.

What is piezography®
Piezography is a type of monochrome inkjet printing that uses 10 grey-black pigments in warm and cold tones. These are carbon inks, which produce exceptionally stable prints.
