Argelès Photo Nature

Environmental awareness and sustainable development, here and abroad

Thanks to the yearly open-air photographic exhibition, les Enfants de la Mer, Argelès sur Mer has become a key  player in the field of environmental activism and sustainable development.

Back for its 12th edition, this recurring summer-long project was originally inspired by the outdoor photography exhibition, Vivants, in Paris back in 2007 and has become a collaborative effort, unique in France.

Renamed Argelès Photo Nature in 2018, the project remains true to its original aims of engaging and educating visitors of all ages.

With exhibitions of nature photographs in large format, along with conferences and discussions from prestigious guests, this one of our must-do events for the summer.

As well as the Esplanade Charles Trenet (beach front), 3 other venues will be displaying the wonderful photographs: place Gambetta, plage Sud and the port so why not get out and about in Argelès this summer?

Did you know that off the very touristy coasts of the Mediterranean Sea lives a large pelagic fauna? Whales and sperm whales, dolphins, turtles, seabirds, moonfish and basking sharks rub shoulders on the high seas, sometimes crossing the wake of a few pleasure boats and merchant ships. They are part of the “pelagos”, these nomadic beings living on the high seas.

Argelès Photo Nature asked several artists to depict insularity at its most fertile and unexpected. A fusion of two previous exhibitions, “Islands…once upon a time” illustrates the variety and creative force of living things. Islands are a thousand worlds without equal, where animal and human beings merge in the great adventure of biodiversity.

Argelès Photo Nature has always wanted to celebrate the beauty of our local nature. A retrospective of “here” exhibitions allows viewers to discover or rediscover the most beautiful views of our environment.
