Étranges convergences

From 10 June 2016 to 23 July 2016

This is a photography exhibition in which a Scottish and a French glance echo and dialogue together. Two different cultures, two ways of working and yet an obvious common sensitivity.

In lochs, rivers and forests of Perthshire or in Breton and European cities, Douglas McBride and Cégolène Frisque both explore the marks of time on forms and textures. Forget your landmarks and let your imagination be imbued with these dazzling, poetic photos.

Douglas Mcbride is a professional photographer. For over 30 years he worked for theatre, advertising, companies, industry and tourism before starting developing his own artistic work. His work has been exhibited in France and Scotland (Chaumont sur Loire, Fréjus, Glasgow, Rennes).

Cégolène Frisque is an academic, sociologist and a photographer. Photography allows her to apprehend the world in another way. No words here but only spontaneous glances and aesthetic sensitivity. She started exhibiting her work in many places such as Rennes, La Roche-sur-Yon and Nantes.

Photography exhibition from 10 June to 23 July
Guided tour with the artists: Saturday 11 June at 11:00
