La Roche Bernard. #illelumiere, a photographic challenge on the phenomenon of river light

2 min read

History buff Kevin Lognoné is launching a creative challenge to collect photos of the river light phenomenon. They can be taken from La Roche-Bernard (Morbihan) to the Ille et Rance canal. Passionate about history, Kévin Lognoné is launching a creative challenge to collect photos of the phenomenon of river light with La Roche-Bernard (Morbihan) as a starting point, up to the Ille et Rance canal.
And to explain: “La Roche-Bernard is a privileged starting point to launch such a photographic adventure between steep slopes and rural landscapes but also as a river stopover to navigate to the sea, on the largest river in Brittany. »

A dialogue between art and technology
The name of the Vilaine derives its origin from an old Breton name, ar ster vilen, meaning “the river with the mills”. A highly probable meaning given the many mills that still line their course today. They represent a source of energy by the same source of light, according to Kevin Lognoné.

At the crossroads of art and technique, this photographic dialogue with light is important because the Vilaine has nurtured major technical challenges as far as Redon (Ille-et-Vilaine), with, for example, Marcel’s Flaminaire factory Quercia, inventor of the gas lighter.

The hashtag #illelumiere to participate
And Kévin Lognoné, to make a general appeal: “My photographic challenge, open to all, intends to collect contributions on the Instagram social network. Everyone can participate by posting photos of the river light with the hashtag #illelumiere. »

There is no deadline to participate: The objective is to schedule a return for May 16, 2023, the UNESCO International Day of Light.

The best ideas and proposals will be collected and published on a participatory platform that everyone can consult: illelumierecanal.wixsite.com/lumieres.
