To celebrate the 65th Cannes Film Festival, Agence France-Presse has teamed up with the city of cannes to present an exhibition of 17 monumental photographs of stars under the title “Cannes fait le mur”, that will grace the city’s walls and the “rue d’Antibes” from May 16 to June 30 2012.

“The agency in 2011 launched a vast restoration and digitisation programme involving over three million glass plates, negatives and prints going back to the early days of photography. Articles, collections and funds acquired in the 20th century will be gradually made available by AFP to its clients to share images of conflicts, cultural events and sporting moments”, Emmanuel Hoog added.
Boasting a network of 500 photo-journalists, AFP regularly wins international prizes such as: the World Press Photo, the Pulitzer, Pictures of the Year International, the Bayeux-Calvados prize for war correspondents, NPPA Awards…
