The 12th International Festival of Fashion Photography takes place in Cannes, France from June 15th to August 29th 2014. This year 90 fashion photographers from around the world will showcase their work on La Croisette (the main boardwalk along the beachfront of the city) as well as in other exhibition areas throughout the city. The Festival’s grand opening took place on Friday, June 27th. The Untitled Magazine’s very own editor-in-chief, Indira Cesarine, was selected to participate in the festival this year, along with photographer Iris Brosch, whose image was an outtake from The “Cinema” Issue 5 of The Untitled Magazine. Other photographers featured in the exhibit this summer include Chico Bialas, who was honored for his work, as well as Vincent Peters, Saima Altunkaya, Kenneth Willardt, Ewelina Stechnij, Camilla Camaglia, Daniele Cipriani, Anna Osk Erlingsdottir, Enrico Labriola, Cyril Lagel, Branislav Simoncik, Diego Zitelli, Karech Contarsy, Nahoko Spiess, and Susanne Stemmer – who were amongst the ninety photographers selected for the festival and exhibition.
The exhibition space is presented between La Croisette, the Gardens of the Rose Garden, the Miramar area and the Palm Beach Casino. Four cardinal places that transform the city of Cannes into a true open-air art gallery, offering the photography high visibility and a wider audience. There were one million visitors last year to view the indoor and outdoor festival featuring large format prints of over one hundred and fifty works of influential fashion photographers. The 2014 jury of the International festival of Fashion Photography gave out three awards at the official exhibit inauguration on June 27th according to creativity, imagination and daring of the artists’ work. The Untitled Magazine‘s editor-in-chief, Indira Cesarine, attended the opening ceremonies in Cannes, and said of the exhibition, “it was inspiring to see Cannes transformed by the stunning imagery. The exhibition was beautifully presented alongside the main promenade of the picturesque city and had an impressive impact on viewers. The curation was also very thought through, with quite a wide selection of works, each unique in their own way. It was also great to be introduced to the work of many photographers from around the world that I was less familiar with.”
