Images that tell stories
Still or moving images with sport as the common denominator. It makes for a fascinating theme because it contains all the ingredients needed to create a good image: aesthetic power, but also emotional impact. It associates the spectacular with a form of depth that comes from the stories and memories it generates. Comprising photographs, videos and installations, SportFoto will be on view at the Tripostal, the Gare Saint Sauveur, the Musée de l’Hospice Comtesse and throughout the city.
This event is made up of some twenty exhibitions that explore the great narrative of sport while also focusing on the smaller stories found within it. It aims to highlight the artistic dimension of the sporting image, but also the strength of its viewpoint and its ability to tap into our emotions, passion or nostalgia.
The event is bringing together the work of photographers who marked the first great moments in the history of sports photojournalism and its first icons alongside more contemporary authors, both specialists and non-specialists, who are interested in all its aspects of this theme, including its social dimension.
Our wish is that each image and each video expresses both its aesthetic and documentary dimension, in a word that they speak, that they it speak to you.
