  eleparc / © Eric Le Parc      Project : Photo Exhibition in Paris

Here is the text of the invitation sent out for my first photo exhibition in Paris at La Maison de l'Afrique, 3 Place St Sulpice. The opening will take place on Thursday, Feb. 26th at 7pm. You are all kindly invited to attend or visit the exhibition before June 20th if you make it to Paris. They chose 17 of my photographs for the exhibition. They are all displayed in this project.

Eric

Those photographs were taken whilst wandering the Gurunsi country in Burkina Faso in 2007. "We had decided to walk across the Gurunsi country with 3 friends, at the southern border of Burkina Faso with Ghana, and to go on foot from village to village to meet the people and discover this Gurunsi architecture that is so unique and so beautiful, with some unexpected geometrical patterns, witnessing some key episodes of their history."

"Those photographs reveal complicity between him and his subjects… His heightened sensibility for human relations coupled with an acute sense of beauty, which forms the backbone of his life, confirmed him in his passion for close portraits. This quest for beauty continuously accompanies his sources of inspiration where travel becomes the ideal vehicle."

A coffee table photography book came out of this journey and will be on sale during the exhibition. It relates this walk in the heart of the Gurunsi country.

You can see the website page of the exhibition on http://www.maisondelafrique.fr/culture/expositions.aspx
