As you may remember, two recent Photography and Imaging alumni–Christine Hemm and Maeghan Henry–were among eight artists who recently completed the fifth annual Jeunes Talents (Young Talents) photography program, in which they were sent on ten-day trips this past spring to various parts of France to capture contemporary French life.
After premiering in the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York earlier this fall, the Shifting Perspectives: Martinique / Metz / Rouen / Toulouse exhibition will move to Los Angeles’ Gallery 825 from November 18 to December 2, 2011, with an opening reception on November 17. A selection of works by Hemm, Henry and all the other artists can be previewed on the Juenes Talents website.
Juenes Talents is a cultural tourism project that combines tourism and the arts, photography and real-life experience, travel and inspiration, and American and French sensibilities to show life in France today. The project is organized by the French Tourism Development Agency; the Cultural Services of the French Consulate in Los Angeles and FLAX, a Los Angeles foundation dedicated to fostering a better understanding of France through public and cultural art events.
