Time To Think launched on Sunday 7th July 2019 at Festival Pil’Ours in France. 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 this year Shutter Hub had the privilege of being be invited to curate the main festival exhibition.
Time To Think includes the work of 145 female photographers from across 15 different countries, and a total of 435 images.
We’re delighted with the exhibition and the response it’s had so far. Everything has been received really well – so well that the festival organisers have suggested extending the duration of the exhibition into Autumn, and have already invited us to return next year! We are thankful to Josephine and Stephane from Festival Pil’Ours for the value they see in sharing this work.
In 2018 we took the work of 70 women to Pil’Ours, and in 2019 that collective group has grown to 145. What can this inclusive movement of female photographers achieve in 2020?
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. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this happen.
