The coast where Deauville is located was named «Côte Fleurie » as a touristic designation to attract the holiday-makers at the beginning of the 20th century, when the seaside resorts and their touristic names flourished in France: Côte d’Azur, d’Albâtre, d’Opale….

The name of a place, of a city really reflects its own and essential features?

Using (apparently) direct photographies, Deauville, ville fleurie plays with flowers, gardens, urban spaces and elements to question the imagery, the touristic representation given by the name of a place and its connections to the city, in a way, its « reality ».
