The international exhibition France eMotion is a travelling art project that celebrates new technologies, the work of four young international photographers and cultural sites throughout France. Featuring 35 original pieces that come alive through augmented reality, the project aims to spark the curiosity of people around the world and inspire them to come (re)discover France’s rich heritage.
France has long been a coveted travel destination, inspiring artists from all over the world to depict its landscapes in their work. Cameras in hand, four international photographers—Ishola Akpo of Benin, Edu Monteiro of Brazil, David Schalliol of the United States, and Lourdes Segade of Spain—set out to explore different parts of the country. Over the course of their journeys, they each captured France’s rich heritage from a fresh new perspective. Visitors are invited to follow in their footsteps—whether to stroll through ramparted fortresses and castle grounds, visit contemporary museums and exhibitions, or gaze upon vaulted abbeys and arch bridges.
