As in the 2022-2023 edition (artist in residence: Stéphane Lavoué), the association decided to keep the idea of crossing eyes with a maritime territory, that of Brittany as part of the twinning of the town of Combloux with the city of Concarneau (Finistère). These two regions, so rich in their natural, historical and built heritage, are also dependent on the harshness of their climate and their complex environment to tame. The women and men who have always lived there share many common stories.
We called for the 2024 edition to Eric Bouvet by offering him an artist residency in Combloux on this theme of mountain refuges in the territory of the country of Mont Blanc. The remaining general objective is to place man at the heart of his environment.
As for the Breton part, the Musée de la Pente and the association «Les amis de Thersi» of Douarnenez have selected from its photographic collection about thirty photographs by Michel Thersiquel evoking the theme of refuges in a maritime environment.

Éric Bouvet was born in Paris in 1961. After studying graphic arts and industries at the Ecole Estienne in Paris, he became a photojournalist by joining the prestigious Gamma Agency in 1983. From 1990 he worked his own subjects as an independent. For four decades, he travelled the world and covered most of the conflicts that changed the course of history. Always in the front line, his reports are published in the biggest international magazines: Time, Life, Newsweek, Paris- Match, Sunday-Time Magazine, Stern, New-York Times, Der Spiegel, Géo, Figaro Magazine...
For several years, he has turned to a more documentary photography, more contemporary inspiration with a large-format 8x10 room. For 5 years he surveyed the Mont Blanc massif for a book: «Elevations» ( released in November 2023).
