Created in 2004 by Jacques Rocher, now President of the Yves Rocher Foundation, the Peoples and Nature Photo Festival is a socially aware event at the crossroads between the art world and photojournalism. The aim is to invite visitors to think about the future of the planet and sustainable development issues.

For four months, from June 3 until September 30, 2017, the festival showcases hundreds of large format photographs in the parks, green maze, squares and flowery streets of the small town. Each new edition celebrates a guest country and revolves around a theme related to the social and environmental concerns of our society.

The very successful La Gacilly Photo Festival has already attracted over 2.5 million visitors and exhibited more than 250 photographers from around the world including the famous Steve McCurry, Robert Capa and Robert Doisneau, as well as talented photojournalists from all over the world.
