Friday 16 July – 11am – 6pm
Saturday 17 July – 10am – 5pm
Four international photographers , Ishola Akpo from Benin, Edu Monteiro from Brazil, David Schalliol from the USA and Lourdes Segade from Spain, have travelled extensively, camera in hand, throughout regional France. Each photographer offers a unique view of the diversity of French architectural heritage. Visitors will be taken on a dazzling voyage around fort walls, across the parks of châteaux, through museums and contemporary art spaces, into the vaults of abbeys and through the arches of ancient bridges en route.
The free exhibition features 35 images focusing on cultural, historical and architectural places of interest in France. Whilst looking at the static images, patrons will be able to download an app and virtually explore these locations with their mobile phones, thanks to clever interactive digital French technology.
