Unexpected. Le hasard des choses
Most important visual art biennale in Switzerland, the Festival Images Vevey proposes every two years an exclusive photography exhibition concept on façades, in parks, indoor exhibitions in unusual venues, and joint ventures with people who ensure Vevey’s status as a ‘city of images’ all year round.
Entirely free of charge, Festival Images is a true open-air museum as well as a quality platform for national and international artists. Held every two years for a period of three weeks, it enables tens of thousands of visitors to discover the best in contemporary photography.
The 2020 Festival Images Vevey is under the patronage of Federal Councillor Alain Berset, Head of the Federal Department of Home Affairs (FDHA).

Les Amis d’Images
The Amis d’Images (‘Friends of Images’) association was created with the aim of giving financial assistance, advice and support in the development of Images Vevey’s three core activities: Festival Images in even years, the international photography award Grand Prix Images in odd years and the permanent gallery for contemporary photography Espace Images.
Bringing together photography enthusiasts and professionals, as well as loyal visitors and curious onlookers, Les Amis d’Images gives picture lovers the opportunity to express their burning passion by getting involved in Images Vevey’s extraordinary adventure. Their help and contribution also enable artists to develop and present their work.
Friends of Images will benefit from many tailor-made opportunities and will be able to take part in specific activities such as workshop visits and photography-related cultural trips at beneficial rates.
