Showcasing almost 100 photographers, and over 200 images, YOUR BODY BELONGS TO YOU brings together women and non-binary photographers from around the world in a selected exhibition and promotes the future of photography through diverse and creative imagery. The outdoor exhibition site is in the centre of St Gilles Croix de Vie, an area that attracts thousands of visitors day and night throughout the seasons, making the exhibition accessible to all.

This will be the fourth year Shutter Hub has showcased photography in St Gilles Croix de Vie, starting back in 2018 when we created ‘Because We Can!’ (because we could), a group exhibition showcasing almost 70 women photographers from around the world. In 2019 we created the main exhibition for Festival Pil’Ours 4th Edition, ‘Time to Think’, showcasing 145 women photographers from across 15 countries. In 2020, due to travel restrictions, ‘Time to Think’ had an encore and was revisited by thousands of people in the area.

Now, in 2022, we’re returning with this new exhibition, Your Body Belongs to You, co-curated by Karen Harvey (Shutter Hub Creative Director) and Marisol Mendez (Shutter Hub member and photographer of MADRE). The exhibition was originally scheduled to run for 3 months from 18 April 2022 – 18 June 2022, but has been extended to run until 28 February 2023.
