Since 2001 The Boutographies – Rencontres Photographiques de Montpellier have been oriented towards young, emerging European talent. After seven years in the Boutonnet district (hence the name) the event moved in 2008 to the centre of Montpellier, where it now offers photographers, public and partners one of the finest exhibition spaces in the south of France.

A jury composed of professionals concerned with the image selects fifteen works to be exhibited, and a further fifteen to be projected.

The principal criterion for selection is the originality of the author’s approach. The jury takes into account all the diverse areas of contemporary photography.


Open Theme
