Life-size photos

There is no need to go to a gallery to enjoy photographic work in Paris, where open-air exhibitions abound.

Today, with the flourishing number of temporary exhibitions that are held here and there in the capital, you do not have to go to a gallery to admire the works of photographers.

After the success in 2000 of the exhibition "La Terre vue du ciel" (The Earth seen from the sky) by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the French Senate decided to continue the initiative and organizes exhibitions on the railings of the Luxembourg Gardens twice each year.
