Exhibition / Exposition : Histoires urbaines - Povesti urbane

And here we go! I’m so happy to announce my very first solo exhibition, Histoires urbaines (Urban stories)!

Histoires urbaines - Povesti urbane

While I’ve already participated in a few group exhibitions, even in some very prestigious ones, it’s always something else to have your own exhibition. It will showcase 30 of my best street photos. Some can already be seen on this website in my Streets portfolio, but also a few new ones that were kept for the event.

I really like the fact that this exhibition is happening in Cluj-Napoca. This is where is has all started, where I first took my camera and started wandering the streets. It seems right to me that my first solo event starts there… and hopefully it’ll continue somewhere else!

The exhibition will take place at the French Institute (Institut Français) at la Cave, their own art dedicated space… in a cave! So if you come by Cluj between June 28th and July 20th, don’t miss the cultural event of the year 😉

And I’ll be there for the opening on the 28th. See you there, I hope!

 

Every year in Sully sur Loire (Loiret, France) take place the Heures Historiques (historical hours, more info there). This is a large festival happening during a whole week-end dedicating to reenactment. It covers a very wide range of historical periods, from the very beginnings until the 1960’s. Because of France’s history, the medieval and World War II periods are definitely the most represented.

There were more than 1000 reenactors, some just wandering, others recreating a piece of the period they “come from” with accessories from a few tiny props to a complete medieval camp up to a WWII war zone. Quite impressive, honestly! Dance shows, knight fights or weaponry tries are organized here and there. The festival is spot on with the the Sully sur Loire castle as background and the Loire just next to it.

I went there with a few photographer friends. In order to do not come back with the same photos as everyone, I decided to go another way, a cinematic way. There is the word “actor” in “reenactors”, so let’s give them what they deserve!

Here are a few of the shots I’ve taken:

Stangers in the Dark XVII – Austerlitz Train Station. Get a print!

The Austerlitz train station is Paris, France, is undergoing some very serious works in order to get modernized, and also extended with four new platforms that has been finished a few months ago. This newer section of the station features a much more modern design than the 1840 architecture of the main building. It really offers some great lines and lights for the photographer 🙂
