Festival La Gacilly-Baden Photo 2020

Europe's largest photo festival comes to Baden bei Wien in its fifth year

Under this year's tagline "Nordwärts!“ (Northwards) the Who is who of the photography scene will be showcasing their fascinating imagery from 9 June to 16 October 2022 at the "Open-Air-Galerie" in Baden bei Wien.

Photographer Jacques Rocher established the festival devoted to humankind and the environment in his birthplace, La Gacilly, Brittany, in 2004. It is his firm belief that, as humans, it is our responsibility to continuously confront the future of our planet and to seek out humanistic and sustainable concepts for dealing with nature and co-existing that led him to establish the Festival La Gacilly. The aim was to bring together artistic photography and photo journalism. Lois Lammerhuber, one of Austria's most important photographers of the present day, has been friends with Jacques Rocher for many years. This connection resulted in Lammerhuber finally bringing La Gacilly to Baden bei Wien too.

Baden set to become a stage

Thanks to the aesthetic magic of the imagery of the world's best photographers, from 9 June to 16 October Baden will be transformed into a giant artwork for the fifth year in a row under the tagline "NORDWÄRTS!". The festival will be showing more than 1,500 photographs on up to 280 m² screens. Starting from the visitor centre in Brusattiplatz, visitors can walk two loops totalling 7 km through Baden's old town, through Doblhoffpark and Gutenbrunner Park, with photographs always in view – and there's no entry fee either!
