Bordeaux and its territory celebrates a new cultural season this summer – “Liberté! Bordeaux 2019”. The solo exhibition “Shores” by Harry Gruyaert, a major figure in photography and a member of the Magnum Photos agency, brings together some sixty exceptional prints in the majestic setting of the Bordeaux Underwater Base.

The latter is coupled with an original photographic commission of 20 prints realised by Harry Gruyaert during a residency in Bordeaux and on the territory. The photographer explores the intimate link between the Gironde capital and the coast. This photographic series is presented at Arrêt sur l’Image Gallery, in partnership with Magnum Photos.
