We meet Beatrice Tupin in December 2019. She created the festival LES FEMMES S’EXPOSENT in 2018, in Houlgate, her adopted city. Her enthusiasm, energy and determination won us over and convinced us to support this event dedicated to women photographers since its third edition in 2020.

LES FEMMES S’EXPOSENT is a festival entirely dedicated to professional women photographers. Its vocation is to show their growing contribution in the world of photography and media, to make their work visible. Less than a quarter of the photographers of the major agencies are women. They earn less than their colleagues. Only 25% of the programming of photographic events showcases the work of women photographers. They are therefore insufficiently represented in the press, festivals, exhibitions and photo awards. The festival LES FEMMES S’EXPOSENT aims to promote and reward the work of women photographers and, thus, to support new generations as well as older ones.

The fourth edition of the festival took place from June 1 to September 5, 2021, in Houlgate in Normandy, with :

The photographers presented during the 2021 edition:

“For the second year in a row, the Fonds Régnier pour la Création has financially supported the photo festival “Les femmes s’exposent”, it is the faithful testimony of a commitment and a benevolent support for this year 2021. “
Béatrice Tupin, President of the Festival
