A Touch of France: A Photo Exhibition
Michael Clarke and Gilles Vauclair exhibit their work.
Michael Clarke: "After retiring as a documentary filmmaker with the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF), I returned to my passion of still photography. As a visual artist, I focus mainly on landscape, architectural and urban photography. I am dedicated to highlighting the creative style, angles and architectural details on facades. My pictures are usually taken in the early morning hours in order to capture the stillness of the moment."
Gilles Vauclair: "I have been taking pictures since my adolescent years. My father, a studio portrait photographer in the early 60s, gave me his own Rolleiflex and it is this camera that I learned the basics of taking pictures. My main interest in the field of photography is urban landscape. I have always lived in big cities and considered myself a part of the urban theater. Architecture has always had a strong impact on me and the camera ultimately became my favorite tool to translate this in images."
