Chernobyl at 2020 Festival La Gacilly-Baden Photo

July 10, 2020

2020’s outdoor photo Festival La Gacilly-Baden is on!

The Festival, which takes place each summer, draws thousands to Baden, Austria—where the pandemic is rapidly subsiding—to enjoy breathtaking photography exhibits displayed outdoors among the gardens, buildings and beautiful landscape. Festival La Gacilly was originally created in 2004 by Jacques Rocher as an annual festival to celebrate photography exploring humanity and the environment in La Gacilly, France. As the result of a collaboration between Rocher and Austrian publisher and photographer Lois Lammerhuber, the first annual Festival La Gacilly-Baden took place in 2018.

Last year’s Festival drew more than a quarter of a million visitors.
