From June 26 to June 28, 2014 the fourth edition of the Photographic Nights festival is taking place in Paris. That means three nights of free screenings and a free exhibition that revolve around photography. The theme of this year’s Photographic Nights (« Nuits Photographiques » in French) is « stories. » These stories recount the lives of real people and unfold throughout the photographic films screened during the festival.
Guests staying at the Hôtel Louvre Marsollier can enjoy a night of culture and photography during their summer stay in the City of Light. Not only will they discover life stories, they will also see some innovative photography techniques, including stop-motion, time-lapse and images that have been reinvented with digital technology.
During the festival more than 40 photographic films will be shown. The exhibition associated with the festival will run from June 13 until August 2, 2014, giving visitors plenty of time to check it out. The exhibit reveals stories and emotions from across the world.
In this way, visitors can experience the personal lives of people from all walks of life. The festival takes place at the Pavillon Carré de Baudouin in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. Although this area is not a usual spot for tourists, it is rapidly becoming one of the hip underground Parisian neighborhoods. Most notably, the 20th arrondissement is the location of the Père-Lachaise Cemetery, where some of the most famous artists and intellectuals are buried — including Jim Morrison, Molière and Balzac.
As a result, a visit to the 20th arrondissement gives visitors the chance to discover the vibrant lives of today and yesterday.
