Night Demonia

Photographer, Melchior Tersen captures ‘La nuit Demonia’ – France’s biggest fetish festival

Words by Melchior Tersen

‘La nuit Demonia’ is the biggest fetish festival in France.

It takes place once a year in beautiful Crayeres, a few hundred meters from where I was in high school. There are shows, music and each year, more than 1,600 people come to the festival in their own way. Latex, leather or vinyl and respectful behavior are the only watchwords.

The must-night in French fetish.

As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.

Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.

As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
