METAL and PLANT
They belong to two very different worlds ...
The first, often impressive in size, has the strength of steel. She is a tool for the man who, watching over her and nurturing her with love, sometimes takes her very far ...
The second is more sedentary, more fragile; these are the seasons that punctuate his life ...
Everything seems to oppose them. However, when the first meets the second along a quay, each highlights the uniqueness of the other.

FRANCE-PHOTOGRAPHIE N ° 271 - June 2020

Douai is back in the last "France Photographie" issue of the magazine of the Photographic Federation of France !

After revealing some treasures from the Municipal Archives in number 270, another world, that of the funfair, is presented in number 271.

Each year, at the beginning of July, Douai lives at Gayant holiday time: shows, exhibitions, parade, funfair ... Circumstances oblige, they will not take place this year. So let's go back two years to find this graphic and colorful universe !

 




FOCALS OF THE PAYS D'AUGE -

For their 3rd edition, the "Focales du pays d'Auge" offer 33 open-air exhibitions inviting visitors to question our relationship to the world and to nature.

400 photos will thus be available on the Honfleur, Équemauville and Beuzeville sites.

They all respond to a double theme:

- The discovery of the great outdoors and the people who work daily on the water,

- The major environmental issues such as global warming, droughts, melting glaciers, access to water, pollution by plastic but also purifying water and its sacred symbolism.


I have the great pleasure of exhibiting in Honfleur, at Lavoir St Léonard, a series of 10 photos, "Adrift" which "highlights" pollution by waste. May this work raise awareness that respect for our environment, nature and the other, is imposed on each of us more than ever ...


You will find all the information on the "Focales du pays d'Auge" website and in the program available at this address.
