Dunkerque Exhibition Liege

From 2 to 31 August 2012 an itinerant photo exhibition dedicated to the Port of Dunkirk will be on display in the Great Hall of Dunkirk Urban Community.

Before this stop in Dunkirk the exhibition, entitled "Arrêt sur Images", was shown in the French cities of Lille and Dunkirk (Dunkerque-Port's Pavillon des Maquettes); it then went on to four cities in Belgium, Liège, Charleroi, Namur and Mons, with which Dunkirk enjoys excellent commercial and industrial relations.

The exhibition, created and designed by the communications department of Dunkerque-Port, comprises 100 original pictures taken by 11 photographers (Manuel Baheux, Jean-Louis Burnod, Bernard Cartiaux, Didier Carette, Michel Guilbert, Maël Kernéis, Emmanuel Leconte, Laurent Mayeux, Christian Merlen, Sébastien Miserole and Sébastien Tomyn). These photos are the work of artists, and show a firm commitment to the aesthetic. The aim is to present the work of photographers with very varied careers who regularly come and photograph life in the port of Dunkirk, and to reveal the unpublished pictures of an aerial photography specialist, a tethered balloon expert, and photographers on the ground with radically differing and complementary outlooks. Visitors to the exhibition will discover the port as it really is, the port from a different angle, and also the port of today prefiguring the port of tomorrow... Operators, cargoes, the port at night and through the seasons, environmental aspects, the place of the port in the city: these virtuosos have captured everything.
