Images Vevey 2022 champions photography talents through special awards


The visual arts biennial Images Vevey, located on the shores of Lake Geneva, opened its eighth edition on September 3, 2022. Presenting over 45 artists from around the world, this edition, titled “Together. La vie ensembles”, centers on the sense of community and suggests many facets of living together through a unique and distinctive approach. As usual, it does this through its singular concept of custom-made photography exhibitions that are brought to life through indoor and outdoor installations. These works invite the audience to experience images in a different way and free of charge. Furthermore, combining elaborate sets, crafted scenography and frequently impressive dimensions of prints, artists’ projects benefit from new interpretations and unusual enjoyment. All of these aspects make this festival a true landmark in the international photographic scene.

In these historical times, when wars and environmental and health-related crises are undermining the very foundations of society and accentuating inequalities, art cannot exempt itself from its political role. In this regard, stressing the importance of creating connections between us human beings—and between our surroundings—is the goal of Images Vevey 2022. This year brings great photography and art stars (such as Thomas Struth, Marina Abramović & Ulay, Gillian Wearing) together with lesser-known contemporary artists, emerging talents, and promises of the new generation.
