How can a photographer create without creations of others?
Paris, Centre Pompidou, Paris-Delhi-Bombay (Archives – Summer 2011)
The artist, Hema Upadhyay, recreated the Dharavi Slum of Bombay on two sides of a narrow corridor. This photograph plays with the lights and shows a detail the elaborated work.

Orval Abbey, Villers-devant-Orval, Belgium
Founded as a Cistercian monastery, the abbey is well-known for its history and current spiritual life. Trappist Cistercian monks still welcome guests for short retreats.
The Abbaye Notre Dame d’Orval attracts also many tourists probably thanks to ist local production of Trappist Beer and typical cheese!

la cathédrale Notre Dame de Reims, France
And more later on I guess. I will not stay far away from this cathedral for ever!
The pictures presented below are not the best ones… but I love this cathedral and I need to share it!
La cathédrale de Reims fête ses 800 ans!
Rheims cathedral turned 800 years old!
Every evening this summer there is a great show on the cathedral. It helps you to imagine how colorful the cathedral looked like when it was first built and how they built it!
Whenever you have time, please try to spend a week end in Rheims in the summer 2011, you will not regret it!
Paris-Delhi-Bombay could stand for the destinations of my planned trip for the next months… but it is also the title of the Current exhibition in Centre Pompidou, Paris
Different artists, either French or Indian contributed to this exhibition. Their works of Art express what they think or what they perceive about India today.
My favorite piece is the one from Hema UPADHYAY: Think Left, Think Right, Think Low, Think Tight, 2010
It is a colorful representation of the largest slum of Mumbai called Dharavi. Have a look at the pictures and try to imagine a tight corridor. On both side of it, vertically and miniature, full of colors, a reproduction of the slum thanks to recycled materials. It is amazing to pay attention to the details like places of worship or electrical systems!
If you happen to be in Paris anytime from now until the 19th of September 2011, do not hesitate to visit the Centre Pompidou!
