Currently trying to get back together after a long year 2020 that clearly wasn’t the most creative, for obvious reasons. To begin with, here’s a flashback to the last days of september, spent on the southern part of the french Atlantic coast, in Biarritz. This much necessary break happened in full compliance with local sanitary regulations and guidelines, social distancing, wearing a mask etc.
Here is the final excerpt of the CMA sessions. The (rather cryptic) theme this time was : body and narration. The goal was to create a story with a succession of 4 – 6 photos.
Flashback to CMA sessions, this time for a reference to the japanese art of folded paper, origami. The exercise used the recent Philharmonie of Paris (concert hall) as its subject. The building itself is pretty much a giant origami of aluminium and steel sheets.
Flashback to my CMA spring training session after this long break ! Not totally happy with the result but it’s the point of training, isn’t it ? In this case, the idea was to practice framing and “breaking” the frame.
Shooting in a cultural centre opening its spaces to amateur performances.
Getting ready to open…
Photos taken during a visit of the Petit Palais, the Beaux-Arts museum of Paris. This jewel built in 1900 displays an eclectic collection, ranging from antiques to paintings and sculpture of the XIXth century.
Here is the Manufacture des Oeillets (eyelets), a cultural center in the southern suburbs of Paris. It includes a theatre, a contemporary art center and a graphic arts school.
The beginning of this month was the opportunity for me to venture in the backstage of a theatre play and to shoot their final run-through. Nothing less than a midsummer night’s dream by Shakespeare : a rather ambitious choice for a troupe of amateurs, but there’s nothing theatre cannot show with a hint of imagination.
A visit of the Enfant-Rouges market square.
