Image © Tadao CernFestival Images stands out from other similar events for several reasons. Firstly, rather than purely presenting existing series, it collaborates with the artists to present exclusive projects tailor‐made by and for the Festival. In the same vein, it also explores ways of reinterpreting existing works and presenting them in public areas, often in a monumental format. Favouring interaction, it promises visitors a real photographic experience in a big way! The images In the programme have a strong potential for narrative that prevails over their documentary dimension. A common thread, ‘Mirrors, reflections and pretence,’ runs through the 2014 Festival programme. The exhibitions cover other themes too: ‘found photography’ or the return of vernacular photography, photography and literature, image reproduction rights and video monitoring, war photography and new reportage or photography in the Internet age. These perspectives are essential to thoroughly grasp the Festival Images 2014 programme.
