The sea is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for artists. On the beach, in industrial or pleasure ports, photography captures the calm of the shores as much as the effervescence of the seaside sites. For the first collaboration of the CRP/ with the town of Le Touquet, the subject of the sea was an obvious one, so present is it in the art centre’s collections. Martin Parr, Frédéric Cornu, Michel Kempf, Alexandre Christiaens, Marilyn Bridges and many others have focused on this space where life and landscapes are articulated differently from elsewhere. In this group exhibition, come and discover a selection of original photographs from the years 1980-1990 that smell of sea spray.
Exhibition from 1 September to 6 November 2022
at the Palais des Congrès in Le Touquet-Paris-Plage (62)
