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…
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.
Shooting in a cultural centre opening its spaces to amateur 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.
Here are some shots of the dance gala of the Gay games 10, held in Paris from August 4th to 12th. Many thanks to the organizers for a lovely event !
And here is the opening of my 2018 season with a celebration of love and diversity. You’ll find below these lines a little glimpse of the 2018 Paris Pride parade, held on june 30th.
Since 1998, the Techno parade brings together lovers of electronic music and heavy beats for a dancing stroll through the streets of Paris. The pictures were taken at the end of the march, around Nation plaza, as the party was winding down (and before it started over again in night clubs).
I saw the Alex Monfort Trio, a jazz band named after its young talented pianist, at a club called le baiser salé (the savory kiss). The other members are Samuel F’hima on the double bass and Tom Peyron on the drums, with, that night, a surprise fourth on the saxophone who rocked some improvised solos. Definitely a fun evening.
What better way to end a summer break than to recall the good times ? So, here is a final flashback to beautiful Arles, without any theme or order, as arbitrary as memories can be. May it help driving away the mild spleen accompanying the nearness of autumn.
