Traditionally, several photography exhibitions are shown during the Fair, offering an opportunity to admire the work of a well-known photographer or to discover new talents. In past editions Jane Evelyn Atwood, John and Claude Batho, Isabel Munoz, Olivier Culmann and Claudine Doury have been invited with the support of the Bièvres municipal authorities.

This year’s special guest photographer is Patrick Tourneboeuf, member and co-founder of Tendance Floue. He will be showing photographs from several series : « Nowhere », « Blow-up », « The Scar » and « Monumental »  dealing with seaside resorts and the way we use our leisure time, the construction of memory, and historical buildings.

He has received various grants, residencies and awards, including the Changjiang International Photography Excellence Award (China) in 2015 and participated in the Transition Project entitled « The Social Landscape Project » at the invitation of the Photo Market School, Johannesburg (South Africa) and the Rencontres d’Arles in France.

His photographs have been purchased by several collections, foundations and institutes including the Carnavalet Museum in France and the Collection Regard in Berlin.  He has published several books and was awarded the 2021 « A Photographer for Eurozeo » Prize for his « Blow-up » series.

Along with works by Patrick Tourneboeuf, the Mille Feuilles bookshop will hold an exhibition on 12 species of birds found in public parks in France, from the book entitled « Feather(s) » by Olivier Lasbley with Bertrand Perrier and Florence Gaudry.
