EXHIBITION ENCORE: TIME TO THINK – St Gilles Croix de Vie, France, Summer/Autumn 2020

© Nicola Jayne Maskrey

Flash back to Summer 2019 and we were at Festival Pil’Ours in France, launching TIME TO THINK – showcasing the work of 145 female photographers from across 15 different countries, and a total of 435 images.

We welcomed guests and photographers who had travelled from Italy, The Netherlands, UK, Ukraine and, of course, France. The beautiful and sleepy seaside town of St Gilles Croix de Vie wakes up each summer for this vibrant and inclusive festival of female photographers, and in 2019 Shutter Hub had the privilege of being be invited to curate the main festival exhibition.

Everything was so well received that the festival organisers extended the duration of the exhibition into Autumn, and invited us to return in 2020.


Here we are in 2020, and whilst we won’t be taking a new Shutter Hub exhibition to St Gilles Croix de Vie, we are really pleased to announce that the Festival Pil’Ours team have brought the exhibition back to the centre of the town, and our TIME TO THINK exhibition will be encored until the late Autumn.

We’re proud to share powerful work, and to do it en masse – showing the strength in community and collaboration, and bringing photographers together in a sharing and supportive environment, and we are more than grateful to everyone who has helped make this happen.
