30/30 Part 3: Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival

Creative Review is 30. To celebrate we have decided, in this 10 part feature, to look forward rather than back.

We asked a range of prominent figures, including practitioners, critics, curators and academics, to tell us about one thing, person, idea or place that they were excited about for the future.

For three decades we have covered the most interesting developments in visual communications: these articles will give you some idea of the ideas, people and directions that you might find in CR in the next 30 years.

Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival
Chosen by Patrick Burgoyne,
editor, Creative Review

Each year the Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival showcases the work of ten up-and- coming photographers in the south of France. I was on the selection panel for this year’s event, whittling down a shortlist of some 60 portfolios to the final ten. Purely by chance, we ended up with five male and five female photo­graphers. There’s a fine line between being encour­aging and being patron­ising but for me it was wonderful to see so many talented female photographers coming through: would we have had the same results in a competition for young graphic designers or ad creatives? I doubt it.

The work of the five women is shown here. All ten will be featured on the blog.
