Following the successful exhibition Imagine France made with photographer Maia Flore (showed for 4 years in 36 countries), Atout France's tourism and culture cluster renewed its partnership with the Institut Français, in order to present a new artistic project promoting French cultural heritage on an internatonal level.

Augmented reality serving cultural tourism

Four international photographers, coming from four different continents, show us French cultural heritage from a new perspective: 35 sites presented as diptychs get promoted by their art. Augmented reality gives pictures life ad enale us to follow the adventures of a morphing character through a free and easy-to-use app, available on mobile phone and tablet.

France eMotion, the animated journey

The journey to France is a long tradition which inspired many artists. They came from far to describe and depict French landscapes. This exhibition shows the work of four photographers: Ishola Akpo is from Benin, Ed Monteiro from Brazil, David Schalliol is american and Lourdes Segade is from Spain.
The four of them wandered on the roads of France to offer their unique vision on French heritage. With them, the audience travels and discover these unique landscapes, museums, castle or parks.
