“RATP invites”' photographers from the Circulation(s) festival

We are continuing our cultural activities by joining forces with the Circulation(s) festival which showcases young European photographers.

In partnership with Circulation(s), a festival dedicated to emerging European photography, we are presenting the vision of five artists. Roam the streets of the Bolivian capital alongside shoe shiners from Federico Estol’s comics, dream of being an R’n’B star of the 1990s through the visual universe of Elisabeth Gomes Barradas, open the door to a world of deceptive perceptions with Sari Soininen, rediscover head-carrying, a family tradition from Silvia Rosi’s native Togo and listen to history told from a new perspective with Marta Bogdanska’s research on the secret adventures of our animal friends.

The Circulation(s) festival

Every year, this festival organises unique exhibitions and events to showcase vibrant young talents and to support the diversity of photography. A springboard for artists, a forward-looking and innovative laboratory of contemporary creativity, Circulation(s) has established itself as an unmissable and trendsetting event in the world of photography. Since its creation in 2011, the festival has exhibited over 400 artists and attracted more than 300,000 visitors, with the increasing desire to stage an event that is both popular and demanding.

Photography in the spotlight

After Harry Gruyaert (2015), Richard Avedon (2016), Yann Arthus-Bertrand (2017), JR (2018), Hajjaj (2019), the artists of Paris Expériences Photos, the Noir & Blanc exhibition at the Grand Palais (2020), Sebastião Salgado (2021) and Vivian Maier (2021), it is the turn of the Circulation(s) festival to take pride of place in the “RATP invites” programme.
Created in 2013, this cultural event enables RATP to regularly exhibit the work of photographers – French or foreign, young talents or renowned artists from different eras – by displaying it widely in its stations. Photography is a community art and a form of artistic expression accessible to the widest audience, and RATP aims to constantly enrich its passengers’ travel experience by regularly providing moments of surprise, discovery and discussion.
