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…
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.
Shooting in a cultural centre opening its spaces to amateur performances.
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.
A visit of the Enfant-Rouges market square.
In April 2018, the Culturespace network created the Atelier des Lumières in Paris. This new digital art center was installed in the building of an old foundry that used to produce cast iron. The inaugural lightshow was themed around Klimt, actually encompassing the Vienna secession more broadly, in particular with pieces from Egon Schiele. These were presented together with original creations.
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’s another and final, short peek at my shootings during the Paris 2018 Gay games, this time with urban dancing and wrestling.
On July 15th, the French football team (psst.. talking about soccer here) won the FIFA world cup in Russia, causing scenes of jubilation in the streets, throughout the country. These provided pretty good pictures.
