Julia Child “France is a Feast” exhibit

I love these rarely seen black and white photographs taken by Paul Child in France between 1948 and 1954.

The recent exhibit features 60 rarely seen black-and-white photographs taken between 1948 and 1954 along with notebooks, logs, letters and a Rolleiflex camera that Paul Child liked to use because it allowed him to look down and capture people unobtrusively.

Paul’s wife, Julia Child, became a celebrity cookbook author and “The French Chef” on television.

First festival: four “Photographic stories” in the den of the abbey of Silvacane

The Abbey of Silvacane in La Roque d’Anthéron (Bouches-du-Rhône) hosts until September 30, 2017 its first festival of “Photographic Stories”. Four projects, led by five international photographers – Hélène David, Ritta Ikonen and Karoline Hjorth forming a duo, Corey Arnold and Amy Friend – give their singular vision of the world. On the menu of the journey: commitment, poetry, humor.
