Festival La Gacilly-Baden Photo ‘WELT.NATUR.ERBE’ - For the seventh time, EDITION LAMMERHUBER is bringing Europe’s biggest outdoor photography festival to Baden near Vienna

WORLD.NATURAL.HERITAGE is taking place from 13 June to 13 October 2024 and is dedicated to the works of the great masters of environmental photography. Emotional and fascinating images on fundamental issues such as urbanization, biodiversity, natural resources, pollution and global warming will provide food for thought on how to preserve the poetry of creation for humanity. Photos that show the beauty of our planet – warning of dire consequences.

An open-air gallery spanning a length of 7 km with approximately 1,500 large-format images in the parks, gardens and squares is transforming the city for the duration of four months once again into a city of photography. With free admission, 31 exhibitions invite visitors on 7 days a week and 24 hours a day to stay a while and enjoy a carefully curated enchanting selection.

“Humanity has opened the gates to hell,” Secretary General António Guterres warned in an impassioned speech to politicians, business leaders and activists on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in September 2023, warning of the dire consequences of increasingly extreme weather events. “Our great concern is that all climate action will be dwarfed by the scale of the challenge as humanity heads towards a temperature rise of 2.8°C.”

An appeal to the world that has long been inscribed at the heart of our festival. It is our duty to preserve the poetry of creation for our children. Therefore, in our seventh festival year, we are showing the work of the great masters of environmental photography: Nazli Abbaspour, Evgenia Arbugaeva, Yasuhoshi Chiba, Joana Choumali, David Doubilet und Jennifer Hayes, Nadia Ferroukhi, Sacha Goldberger, Richard Ladkani, Lucas Lenci, Luca Locatelli, Pascal Maitre, Beth Moon, Maxime Riché, Sebastião Salgado, Alain Schroeder, Vee Speers, Brent Stirton, Lorraine Turci, David Turnley, Peter Turnley, and Cássio Vasconcellos.

“We all need Eden as a horizon,” writes Cyril Drouhet, Curator of Gacilly, in his essay in the festival catalogue. “There was a time when we had a rainbow in our heads: We believed in the future, in progress, our dreams were full of utopias. In the third millennium, this color has faded to gray. But life needs radiant colors like in photography to enchant the world again. That is the challenge of the coming years and the challenge of our festival.”

This year, the bilateral photography project of the Morbihan schools in Brittany and Lower Austria is also dedicated to the theme of ‘Nature as Heritage’. We are giving young people the opportunity to express their ideas on the challenges of today and, above all, of tomorrow: how can we shape social models to preserve our unique world for our children?

“We have the choice to use the gift of our lives to make the world a better place,” Jane Goodall is convinced. Martin Parr, whom the festival will honor with the first Lifetime Achievement Award, is certainly in this spirit of preserving rays of hope for humanity.

A very special visual highlight is the exhibition ‘The Human Footprint’, images from orbit, prepared by Gerald Mansberger and Markus Eisl. And Norbert Span shows us in his pictures why snow crystals are the ‘jewels of the sky’, while Luigi Caputo’s images tell the story of a magical world. Fascinating perspectives of the mysterious places behind the stage and an homage to the artists of the Salzburg Festival.

The exhibition of photographs by professional photographers from Lower Austria and the ‘Director’s Cut’ exhibition by Jury President Michel Comte from CEWE’s ‘Our World is Beautiful’, the world’s largest photo competition with over 500,000 images from 170 countries, will round off the festival, as will the look back at 2023 in the images of artist in residence Ina Künne

Under the guiding principle of ‘Culture of Solidarity’, the cooperation with the festival partners Garden Tulln and Month of Photography Bratislava will continue in 2024.

To accompany the festival, Edition Lammerhuber is publishing the WELT.NATUR.ERBE festival catalogue. German/English, 18 x 24 cm; 288 pages, softcover, € 25.00
