"Isola Nova"

Isola Nova Philippe Calandre Espace Richaud Versailles
Philippe Calandre's utopic Venice photographic exhibition entitled 'Isola Nova' is visible at Espace Richaud in the former royal hospital until 8 November and VDP went last Saturday. Adding industrial buildings to the gorgeous landmarks is a very surprising and interesting take on Venice, don't you think? VDP liked the shadow of a window so included it in the first shot. All the info on the exhibition is this way, albeit in français!

L'exposition des photos utopiques de Philippe Calandre, intitulée "Isola Nova", est visible jusqu'au 8 novembre à l'Espace Richaud dans l'ancien hôpital royal restauré. VDP s'y est rendue samedi dernier et a trouvé intéressantes ces utopies de Venise, une sorte de futur étrange où les bâtiments industriels s'immiscent dans l'architecture vénitienne traditionnelle. Ces œuvres sont particulièrement mises en valeur dans ce lieu magnifique! Les infos sont par ici.

Colonnades like this just can't be beat for symmetry and form.

The venue for the exhibition looks just as inviting as the exhibits.

I was so charmed by Venice that I'm sure I would love this exhibit and the photographer's point of view.

L'idée de "greffe" est passionnante et devrait toujours exister dans tout nouveau projet ce qui n'est malheureusement pas le cas. Mais bon on peut rêver comme ici.
Joli partage.
