    La Fontaine Obscure presents


    La Fontaine Obscure is an association of professional and/or amateur photographers based in Aix en Provence since 38 years. This association has been organizing for 18 years, PHOT’AIX, the Photography Festival, which strives to meet a double challenge:

    1. Promote contemporary photography by facilitating exchanges between French and foreign artists as part of the international exhibition Regards Croisés;
    2. Bringing photography down to a wider general audience and encouraging the emergence of new talents, by organizing Les Parcours Photographiques.

    In 2015, Regards Croisés invited Japan for an exceptional exhibition: five Japanese artists (Yuki Hamada, Ken Kitano, Miki Nitadori, Naruki Oshima, Kazuyoshi Usui), exhibited their photographs in regard of five French photographers (Olivier Monge, Julie Poncet, Myriam Richard, Dorothy-Shoes, Tibo Streicher). Risaku Suzuki was the guest of honour. Since then, Belgium and then China have honoured Regards Croisés, and in 2018, Austria.

    In addition to PHOT’AIX, the association organizes many events: monthly exhibitions in its gallery, readings of portfolios, participation in the Voies Off des Rencontres d’Arles and various photographic events in France and abroad, in addition to the various offers of training all year round (Masterclass and courses at all levels).
