Resuming my creative process with a throwback to the 21st edition of the Techno parade, that took place in Paris in september 2019. These are only a few random street portraits and ambient shots that I fancy, but in the age of COVID, they’re also memories of a different time…
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.
First of the CMA series, dedicated to the product a studio photography class, is Acces-sorry. A tribute to improvisation and desperate research for ideas, or when creativity is forced.
Shooting in a cultural centre opening its spaces to amateur performances.
This year, my visit of the Paris international fair of contemporary art (FIAC) turned out to be a lot about Brussels-based American dancer Daniel Linehan, who was invited for a couple performances.
For the 6th time, the Journal du Yoga organized a yoga fair in Paris, under the high patronage of the embassy of India. Adepts could meet during 4 days, bringing together many of this disciplin’s aspects, but also a lot of activities and products related to the lifestyle (ayurvedic medicine, incense, veggie food, recycled items etc.).
The 20th Techno Parade took place last September in Paris, spreading heavy beats from the Louvre to the place d’Italie. The cold autumnal rain of the beginning didn’t wash away the enthusiasm of this fun dancey mob.
This giant choreography signed by Akram Khan, in association with the théâtre du Châtelet, brought together over 700 dancers of all levels in front of the Paris city hall. Many congratulations to them for the beautiful show, and enduring the crushing heat of that day.
Here are pictures of the Existe en Ciel circus solo, performed by acrobat, dancer and comedian Théo Touvet. The title of the show is a pun suggesting that something exists up in the sky, while sounding like the word “existential”.
