AN EXHIBITION OF PARIS Context ‘Paris, the world's most popular city destination, has plenty of must-see places but make sure you spend at least a day strolling off the beaten path, as this is the only way to discover the real Paris: a lively cosmopolitan but undeniably French city.’ Create a visual journey that captures the true cultural essence of Paris from an artistic designers perspective.
Brief Through the predominant use of photography capture the look, feel and culture of Paris. Through ongoing research and documentation of your experience in Paris gather information and visuals in regards to specific chosen themes such as Parisian architecture, pattern, signage, the French language, people and fashion. After organising and editing prepare your images to be displayed through print (publication) and web (blog) as well as a wall display to exhibit the photography.
