Les Photaumnales 2014: Rock’n’Roll

France – The 11th edition of the Photaumnales Festival, organized by Diaphane, will be held from September 27th, 2014 to January 11th, 2015 in Picardy. Les Photaumnales 2014 suggests revisiting the history of Rock’n’Roll through photography, exploring the deep relationship between image, music and the world of Rock Guest curator Daniel Challe writes in his introduction: “The twentieth century gave us the Leica and the Gibson guitar (the first amplified guitar), instant photography and electricity. Rock’n’roll is a sketch of the present time, voice and sound mixed, reportage. Such is the stance underlying this 2014 edition of Photaumnales, Rock’n’roll: A Photo Album, to evoke the urgency, the frontal attack that the late Joe Strummer, lead singer of The Clash, alluded to in an interview: ‘We would pick up stuff out of newspapers to write our songs. Even our name came from the press.’ Three parts mark the beat of this story: This is England, Rock Icons and The Disciples, like so many pieces of a puzzle where the presented photographers compose a great song in images and sound. ROCK’N’ROLL, reeling, pitching, expressing desire, the body, life, energy. Let this 2014 edition of Photaumnales be first and foremost a whole lot of fun for everyone. BEAUVAIS CALLING!”
