Food Photography Exhibition and Food Tasting

Show map

Tours, International City for Gastronomy in the Loire Valley welcomes you from October 1st to December 21st to the Villa Rabelais for the exhibition of the International Festival of Food Photography.

If etymologically speaking, the photography is the art of painting with light, and the gastronomy, that of eating well, the food photography would be the art of shedding light on our food.
A photo is an invitation to reflection, to a daydream… and can even be mouth-watering when it comes to a picture of food.
It seems natural that the IFFP (International Festival of Food Photography) stops over in Tours, International City for Gastronomy which the unique common thread is the meal, the French “art de vivre”.
More than 80 Works of Art are on display at “La Villa Rabelais”, headquarters of the Association, illustrating the work of the photographers on the theme of the Table, a place of sharing and conviviality.
Did this visit whet your appetite? What would be better than a fruit juice from the orchard of Manse with a macaroon of Cormery?
See you there then, until December 21st to discover these works of Art celebrating both the beautiful and the good!
