Whether it’s a quick nip across the Croisette or a long wait standing outside or inside the Festival Palace, Cannes Festival nearly always leaves a collection of dazzling memories in participant’s minds. The glamour and the buzz around those going up the steps have a large part to play here: being able to ascertain that the charm of such and such a star still works off-screen is a worthwhile experience that merits being recounted to one’s close friends back home. Climbing the steps is a symbol in Cannes under the battery of flashing cameras, it’s mainly done in slow motion with pauses. Photographs by Vincent Leroux, Yannick Labrousse, Philippe Grollier, Patrice Normand, and Valentine Vermeil.
